My Mom Picks on my girlfriend

Hi Birdy,

My mom is going to ruin my feelings for my girlfriend. She picks up on all her faults, some of which are true. Should I just let my girl go for an easier life? Nick


Hey Nick,

Relationships can be complicated, especially when it involves our family's opinions. It's essential to remember that it's your relationship, and ultimately, the decision should be yours.

While your mom may have valid concerns, it's essential to evaluate your feelings for your girlfriend and the aspects of the relationship that are meaningful to you. No relationship is perfect, and it's normal for couples to have flaws and challenges.

Consider having an open and honest conversation with your girlfriend about the issues your mom brings up. Communication is key to understanding each other better and finding ways to grow together as a couple.

However, if you find that the relationship is causing you more stress and unhappiness than joy, it might be worth taking some time to reflect on what you truly want.

Remember, you deserve to be in a relationship where you feel valued and supported. Don't let external factors solely determine your decisions, but instead, focus on what feels right for you and your well-being.

Take care, Nick, and trust your instincts as you navigate through this situation.

Wishing you clarity and peace of mind,

Birdy
