Dear Jude, I am a very independent person in general. However Ive been noticing that I might be too much emotionally attached to my mom. She has always been an imposing person and bc of the social problems Ive had through my life she maybe grew more important than she should be? Now I have become psicologically more stable and dont have that need anymore. However, I still notice how much her opinion matters to me and how it impacts my daily life. I really want to change that.
