Today, after 10 months of hard work, it was the opening night of the show I was directing. Everybody loved it, except my mother. She called it the worst thing she'd ever seen. Thanks for the support, mum. FML

It's hard to see the brighter side of things when your mom reacts as she did, OP. Just try to keep in mind what you did accomplish and know you can't please everyone, including your mom.

Parents aren't always automatically NOT assholes, y'know.

How is that being a mother? Being a (good) mother is being supportive of whatever you do, even if it's not the best. In this case, it was seemingly pretty darn good.

This is what I don't get, people always saying if someone doesn't like something, usually having the minority opinion, it's automatically jealousy. Maybe they just genuinely don't like it?! Is it so catastrophic to have a negative opinion that it has to be envy? No! In some cases maybe, but not all!

The term Brony is kinda like the term bro. A woman can be your bro, you can have a bromance with a woman. In less cultural terms, it's like the difference between post carrier and post woman

Some parents will just never appreciate anything their child does--especially if it's something they don't understand/approve of, such as the arts. There's really nothing you can do about it.
