I feel a bit miserable right now;)

Yesterday I went for dinner at my parents and everything was perfect. Later my mum and I sat talking in the kitchen and then her cell phone started ringing.
It was the daughter of a very close friend and colleague of hers. It turned out that my mums friend had died two days ago and the daughter called to tell my mum about the funeral.
After the call my mum told me about it, and the fact that she did not want me to know about it.
I felt so sorry for my mum because I know how close she and her friend was. And I got upset that she had not told me. Then she said she did not want to bother me with it, because I have enough on my mind right now!!
I informed her that she had the same on her mind as I have and that I wanted to know when things like that happened.
She had told my dad though so she was not alone with her grief. I told her I would be going to the funeral with her - it is on Saturday and she was pleased that I would. My dad would drive her, but he hates things like that, and I don`t want her to be alone.

The reason I feel so miserable???? My parents love me so much that they want to shield and protect me from things that would upset me….and I want them to let me in on those things because we never had secrets before.
I am not angry or upset with my mum in any way, but it just saddens me a bit that they try so hard to protect me….but the things we do for love, right;)

Thank you sweetie,
Thanks for your kind words.
I am proud of them and I love them very much, but it makes me sad that they feel the need to hide things like that from me;)

I´m sorry to hear about your dad..
But you are right...To our parents we will always be the children needing protection, even when we grow up and want to protect them;)

Your parents are worried about you and they just don't want to bother when you need to rest.
But I do understand that it is important for you to know and to share with your mum because as much as you need her she needs you.
It's better that she doesn't go to the funeral alone.

Thanks sweetie,
I know they want to protect me and I love them for that, but I have always been the one takeing care of everybody and looking after everyone, and I feel bad that I can`t do that right now.
But I will be going with my mum on Saturday, I don`t want her to go alone;)
♥love you♥

I'm so sorry that your Mum has lost a good friend. I can totally understand why she didn't tell you, but I would feel the same as you about not being told.

Sometimes it's just so hard to do the right thing, either way it's going to hurt, but she had your best interest at heart, even if it doesn't help you. I would want to know these things.

*big hugs to you and your Mum*

ps. you know I will be thinking of you, take care.
