I'm going through a rough breakup and honestly she has been in and out of my life, my whole life. So I have no desire to confide things with her. I have friends and family who I am much closer with and would much rather talk to. But she lives with me so she will see me upset and just start prodding me trying to get me to talk. How do I even handle this? I don't want to talk about it with her, but she won't leave me alone.

Just be honest with her. She's just worried about you because she loves you. Just say something like "Mom, I know you mean well and and I love you, I know you care but I need to deal with this on my own. I'll come to you if I want to talk. I'm ok"1

From my own personal experience I wasn't close to my mom, she was always so cold but she passed away in 2010 and I feel like we have edges that never were made better. She was in my life all the time but I feel like she hated me. She was always mad and always gone working mostly because of other issues but I do wish I had more time with her. A girl never stops needing her mom no matter what. I am older now and I wasn't close to my dad either and he put us through hell too but since he's getting older I'm taking this time to make amends since he's changed now from what he used to be on drugs and alcohol. But I know I don't have much time with him so I'm making the best I got because it's too late for me and my mom now0
