I’m not sure but probably most of you at some point of your raw food begining had people against the way you were eating. I started in June and some of my friends thought I was nuts, but eventually they stayed my friends and accepted me just the way I am probably because I never forced them to eat how I eat, and answer questions when every they ask. BUT!!!!!
I have a major problem with my mother!! She is so negative, against me, thinks I’m going to die, does not belive a word I say, and insults me to no end! I know she cares about me, worries and loves me. But when I talk to her everyday I hear “you’re not taking enough vitamins, you’re going to ruin your body, you’re malnurished, you are not the same, etc etc”
I am starting to avoid her calls and feel depressed about this. I’ve even taken her advice and started reading books against raw and that has been very upsetting. I love the way I feel eating raw and I say to myself, that is all that matters right now. I don’t live near my mother and she’s coming to visit me in December, so crossing my fingers she’ll notice a big difference in me from eating raw.
I did send her a recent photo of me and she told me my hair looks horrible (since 3 weeks ago, I stopped shampoo & conditioner). I lost too much weight, etc. From my friends and my boyfriend they love the change, I get complimented from people I don’t know about my hair saying it’s so curly.
I don’t know what to do to convince my mother, she has never been this negative about me and my decisions, but it’s really bumming me out and I can’t get her to listen, understand and just let me be happier!
Does anyone have a similar problem like me?
