I know I haven't been on in a while, but I really need some advice. I'm falling for a man who lives states away. Things have been marvelous, until my mother decided I needed a reality check. She said it will never work and that I am setting myself up to get hurt. I've never been in a relationship and I know it sounds crazy for me to be falling for this man, but I am and he is for me. I'm afraid because of the doubts my mother has instilled in my head I may ruin this. She says I need to talk to my counselor about this, see what she says, and follow what she suggests. My mom said, sometimes reality hurts, but better to be hurt now than down the road when this relationship doesn't work out. But I keep seeing one of the self-affirmations we do at my psychotherapy "I can choose to live my life as I wish and give priority to my desires." Why is that for once in my life I have something I want, and my mother is trying to shut it down. I know she is just looking out for me. She doesn't want me to get hurt. She wants me to see reality before it is too late. She doesn't want another large hurt to come into my life and bring me down. But isn't a person supposed to make there own mistakes. Don't I have the right to fall on my ass and pull myself out of it? What the hell am I supposed to do?
