Disowned by Mom

Hey Elsa,

I’m independent from my parents and my mom and I have a number of disagreements. Matter of fact, at the moment, I’m disowned. I find her condescending and domineering – she finds me whiny and petulant.

We saw each other recently and it was the same old pattern…her considering me a mess, despite the fact that everything I’ve done in the past year has been without her assistance (this includes getting my license, getting a car, paying a year of tuition, getting accepted to study in Europe over the summer). She would like to view me separately from the conditions of my life right now, cause she doesn’t like them. That frustrates me. Will this woman ever see me as a capable individual? Will I stop trying to prove to her that I am?

I have a 3.6 carrying 20 credits and working four days a week in university, I’m double majoring and minoring…this seems to impress everyone BUT her. Situation ever gonna get better? Are we capable of looking at stuff the same way? If we are – how hard will it be?
