Is my mom ever proud of me?
If your mother isn’t happy, it may be hard for her to be generous with encouragement. This is a shame for her and for you.
Try to accept that she has her own flaws and frustrations, and try to stop expecting what she seems unable to give. Her attitude may reflect her own sadness and disappointment, which has nothing to do with you. In the meantime, is someone giving you the praise, kudos, and support you deserve – your dad maybe, or a favorite teacher? I hope that your mom comes around.
