My mother… in Life Lessons

So my mom and I have always been pretty close - as I’ve gotten older (my young adult years) she’s became more manipulating and controlling (tracks my every move, tries to plan out my daily activities, tells me what I can and can’t do) mind you I am married, living with my husband and 22 years old. My husband does not like his job, and it hardly pays enough to cover our bills (when he tries to get advice from my dad, my dad just tells him to stick it out) so my husband has decided to start taking classes to get a different job - we didn’t immediately tell my parents - cause it’s not really their business, and they found out through the grapevine. So since then (this was about a month and a half ago) my mom has been really rude to me, won’t really talk to me, and acts like she don’t want anything to do with me. It just bothers me that she’s acting this way, maybe I’m being over dramatic and need to just let it go… I’ve also gotten closer with my 16 year old sister and she tells me how my mom gripes about me all the time…
I just don’t know what to do, should I confront her? Just let it go?

Let it go.

If mom is still supporting you, you'll most likely get a lot of advice from her & you may have to put up with it.

If you're old enough and mature enough to get married & support yourself, you're an adult and do as you please.

Good luck.

It’s just very difficult…
