Me and some of my best friends were having a ladies night in over the weekend and the wine was flowing. We started talking about some of our issues and that’s when I started to talk about my Mom. To give you an idea about her- she’s a perfectionist and she always means well but can be extremely overbearing and intrusive into my lifestyle and parenting techniques.
So I was talking about how my Mom is insisting to come over on Christmas eve and how she’s been overbearing… and then my BEST FRIEND chimes in.
We’ve been best friends for nearly 20 years- and she’s known my Mom for that long too. She said “yeah, your Mom is a total nosey b*tch and needs to take a chill pill!”. She then went on to say how my Mom has always been ‘too much’ for her and how I need to learn to say no to my Mom.
I get that the drinks were flowing… but this upset me a lot. I’ve never heard my friend talk about my mother this way and all I was doing was trying to vent. When I told her what she said was inappropriate she said that it was my fault for complaning about her in the first place… I got upset and ended up calling it a night.
Things have been weird between us ever since.
What do I do? Am I in the wrong?
