Thank you to the two ppl that responded to my post. Ur words mean a lot because I never had anyone say them too me. Ppl don’t know who I am and it makes me feel like nobody knows the real me. I love my mom because she’s a strong independent woman and I can never dismiss her opinions. I get where she’s coming from but I also know that eventually I’m going to be and be with whoever I want because it’s the only way I’ll find happiness. As to the girl, I’m going to move on. She’s living her own life without me and I’m fine with that. I can wait.
