I’m sorry. I wish I could help. Your mom was out of line. I hope you can find the courage to tell her these things. Maybe it would be easier to write it down and give it to her than to say it out loud. I hope things work out and that your next marriage makes the previous one a distant memory that you hardly recall.

Oh man, I’m really sorry. But is your mom of Eastern-European descent? Not trying to generalize, but that sounds a lot like my mom! When I was a teenager getting ready to leave for college I told her that I really would have been happy being a professional bridge player and instructor (I was crazy about the game back then), and she flat out told me that I should let her know if that is the case so that she stops investing in me, that I’m an investment for them and she hasn’t gone all this way for me to just break her heart and disappoint her. Just hoping that sharing my story will make you feel like you’re not alone… In the meantime my mom has grown a lot and started to be a much better mother, but both her and my dad have their rather selfish moments, and there’s a lot of times when I wonder how come I didn’t end up having to see a therapist every day because of them!

I’m sorry.  Even though she feels that way, she shouldn’t have said it to you.
