My Mother can be quite a character (see: diva) sometimes, especially when she thinks she’s right. And even though it drives me nuts sometimes, I’ve learned to put up with it and let a lot of it slide.
…buuut this isn’t one of those times! So I phoned up Mother and explained to her my perspective on this whole ditching-for-Danny situation.
Basically, it’s unfair for her to get angry that I missed one night of weekly improv with her to go out with a guy I really like. I put off a lot of stuff with Danny before when I was in Montreal with her, and again when she needed my support after her break up. That, plus the fact that she’s projecting her own emotions onto MY relationship? Not cool.
So I told her…held my breath…
And it was fine. She listened…and told me I was right. She was wrong in chastising me and apologized.
YES for standing up for myself! Situation DIFFUSED!!
