I can't believe I'm coming here for this, but I'm sure some of you might have insight to lend me some thoughtful advice.
So my mom had an embarrassing article published about me in the hometown newspaper several months ago, and now she's blown it up on facebook. For anyone, this is typically something to be proud of; however, this one isn't your typical 'so-and-so made the dean's list this semester.' It goes into detail about what I'm doing in school, stretching it to where it really couldn't be further from the truth.
It boasts things that aren't confirmed, for example, having lots of art shows and designing furniture in my studio. It goes on to say other things like that. But truth is, I'm rarely in any shows, and everyone in my class each built a chair because we had to for an assignment. The article makes me look as if I think I'm better than everybody else and is a complete joke to me. Even the picture looks snobby. I just reopened my fb account for the first time in years, and I don't want to deal with that out in the open online. While my mom is having an ego trip, I'm feeling very ashamed, because I don't want to be a lie. If my professors and classmates read the article, they would probably find it very amusing.
So embarrassed. I thought I got over this months ago, but that's hard to do with facebook. How do I deal with this? Should I say something or just brush it off and ignore it?
