MY MOM TALKED BAD ABOUT ME BEHIND MY BACK

Dear Willie D:

I'm a 23-year-old female who lives at home with my mom. She has always supported me and encouraged me by saying the regular things like, "You're so smart, and I'm proud of you." But yesterday at home, I overheard her tell her friend on the phone that I'm a big disappointment.

Shocked and hurt, I stayed in my room and cried all night. She has been trying to be nice to me. She keeps asking me what's wrong, but I just tell her nothing to make her go away. I don't know how to feel about our relationship now. I feel as though my whole life with her has been a lie. I want to tell her how she hurt me, but I also want to move away from her and never speak to her again.

Please tell me what to do to get through this?
