Re: Not Really sure where to put this?
Hard as it is to do, you must take some breathing space. Your mother sounds very needy and dependent, and if you want a life of your own, then you must (gently, but firmly) cut the apron strings. When she hassles you about your ex, just tell her nicely that you are handling it on your own. There is really no way around the fact that you are going to have to upset her from time to time while you are making your own way, but that is really what nature intends us to do - leave the mother bird and the nest. Sera.
