browneyedgirl - thanks for the post! i was starting to feel like i was the only person on PS that had a super conservative mother, even if it was just a cultural thing. someone that understands! haha. thanks again.
we''ll be going to Puerto Morelos...i believe its not too far from Playa del Carmen. did you enjoy your trip?
I understand respecting your parents. But you are an adult and you have the right to do as you wish. As much as I see you wanting to repsect her wishes, YOU also deserve the respect, being that you are a full grown woman in a grown up relationship with a man you are going to marry. She needs to let go alittle, and you need to let go too. I''ve made some decisions that went against everything my parents thought I should do, and it didn''t kill them, YES they were mad for a few weeks, but they got over it because they love me and we moved on from there. Your mom loves you and wants the best, but it being cultural, she might not be able to understand (not saying your mom is ignorant, I have a hard time understanding other cultures that I wasn''t raised in). This is where you need to step up and say I''m an adult.Date: 2/24/2009 9:44:49 AM
she''s freaking out again.
she''s just not making sense. only married people are supposed to travel together. if you wanna go away together, go to city hall and get married first.
i see it as, she doesn''t trust me to make my own decisions as an adult. she swears that has nothing to do with it.
i don''t get it. i''m upset. she''s beyond talking to now. what do i do? go against her even tho she is very clear about how she feels and just go....or not. i pretty much know what most of you will say...why am i still asking for permission? because i live under her roof and i still feel obligated to take into consideration her feelings.
i''m thinking all sorts of crazy. should i move out? i feel so sufficated right now. i''m so furious right now, i can''t even think straight.
