I don’t know what to do. I doubt that any of you don’t know that I am recently engaged – I feel like I’ve been telling everybody and their dog, I was so excited. But now, my happiness has faded into quiet desperation, because I feel that I can not share this good news with my mother. At first, I was only going to hide it until I was well established in school, so that she could see that I was not going to give up on my education to get married. But now, everytime I mention Carl or relationships or anything of the sort, she goes off onto a very pointed sermon about how she hopes that I am not making any kind of long term commitments. My only response to this has been that she need not worry; nothing will persuade me to leave school. Although I understand that she is only trying to prevent mistakes that she feels will hurt me, I feel that she is biased by her own unusually bad experiences and choices. I really want to be open with mom, and stop having to hide my engagement from anyone who knows any of my relatives. But, I am so afraid that she will go ballistic, and I don’t want to lose the good relationship that we have only just begun to build up again. I’ve asked Carl for advice, and he tells me to do what I feel I should; well, I don’t know what that is!
I was educated long after the discontinuation of flogging, and I have no problems with spelling or grammar.
This is because I’m not a moron.
