When I’m out in public with my mom, she will sometimes tell me that people are giving me dirty looks. This used to really bother me when I was a teenager because I felt like people were constantly judging me behind my back. Now that I’m older it just hurts a little.
Today we went to the grocery store, and when we got back in the car she said “a lot of people in there were giving you a weird look. what were you doing near the broccoli? A lady there gave you a dirty look”.
I was honestly just standing there minding my business.
Even on the Fourth of July we passed a group of girls and my mom said “they were judging us really hardcore”.
I really just thought they were minding their own business.
Like it said, it only hurts my feelings a little and makes me feel slightly insecure. What is mainly bothering me is that I’m having a hard time telling if this is normal behavior, and why my mom is doing this.
