For the few years I was dating my now husband, my mom and I fought constantly. Day after day, I’d study her face and I’d either run away, or go into battle mode. (I shared my experience in this winning speech).
I had to deal with a lot of grief, feeling like I’ve lost my mom.
I felt guilty, because I felt as if I’d failed my mom.
I was also very scared, for not knowing whether I was making the right decision.
It was one of the hardest journeys I had to go on, and I had to choose myself over over again in order to make it to where I am now.
