Description for DVD Obsession
There are two women in my life, my mother and my girlfriend. There’s been a tension between the two, and they haven’t even met yet. They both think that the other occupies too much of my time.
To be fair to Jill, she’s probably right. I told you before that my mom needs me, I’ve been taking care of her ever since she left dad. My mom can “act out” just as a young lady would when I don’t give her enough attention. It drives me crazy when my mom volunteers to work late, and then oops– she dozed off at work. I need to know where she is and what she’s up to. My mother has a tendency to get into trouble, she is an attractive woman, a vulnerable woman, and the two are not a good mix. She needs me to protect her.
Mom wants to meet Jill, and I get it. Jill’s my first serious girlfriend. Jill’s been pressuring me to go away to college with her, all the way on the East Coast. Jill has my best interests at heart, I need to go to a University to land the job of my dreams, but on the other hand, could I leave mother? I need to explain to Jill that I can’t, she’s just not ready yet, but I need to find the right time. Jill would take it hard, she is in love with me.
I remember the morning that Jill finally met my mother, I tried to delay the meeting for as long as possible. I was hopeful the two women get along so well that we’ll all be one big happy family. We had breakfast together and I saw my mother look at her, her eyes full of resentment and competition, and I was in the middle. My mother is a clever woman, and she knows the mind of a young woman, she was able to get to Jill, and there is nothing passive about mother’s aggression and manipulation. Jill ran out in tears.
Watch the story unfold from there.
