I told her and she flipped. Have you experienced this?
So, after writing my pps since April(2012), I finally told my mom about it. I'm 21..and I just recently changed my major to criminology (which she also strongly disagreed with). She believes that idea of communicating with "criminals" (which I refer to as "offenders") is too dangerous. I told her and she flipped..she told me they were a waste of my time and that it's one thing to do for a career but "with your free time Morgan???" She is convinced that I will be manipulated and fall in love despite how many times I told her I was writing for friendship and rehabilitation purposes only. On top of that she insist that they are all the same and will never change..she says growing up in a bad place isn't an excuse because people overcome it everyday. Despite this, my opinion and my beliefs remain the same. She told me to stop, I reminded her that I am an adult and changed the subject that we eventually returned to. Towards the end of our 2 hours argument/debate/conversation I got her to admit that SOME people do/can and will change and that they are not all the same. She doesn't want me to pursue this passion but I expected her to be overprotective.
My inquiry is if any of you have gotten similar reactions? Were you able to convince them otherwise? Did it make you stop writing? I just what to know what you've experienced in relation to this..
