TIA. My mom is 46 years old. She's always been the same ever since I've known her. She's a deeply religious person. She doesn't go out, except to the store and to work. 24 years ago, when she decided to become born-again, she changed her entire lifestyle. She quit her job, took the earrings out of her ears and dumped my non- believing father. She moved us close to other members of the congregation and decided to homeschool us (they all did it at the time). I'm 21, and she finally started working again last year. Now, I'm noticing a bunch of weird changes. She gotten her ears re-pierced, going to the hair salon regularly, and buying new clothes (she's always bought second- hand). Moreover, she's talking about MEN, when I know that she's been celibate for decades! She's asking me advice about styling herself! I know this may not sound like a big deal to you all, but she is totally different than the person I used to know. If these things make her happy, I don't want to stand in her way, but I'm quite a bit alarmed that all of these things have happened so suddenly and all in concert. I told her that I think she needs to talk to someone and she laughed at me. What do you all think?
