My mom is really headstrong and believes that everything (mostly) she does and says is right. It's infuriating sometimes because then she won't listen to me. She made me participate in a swim team and although i do like swimming, my swim coach is really strict and i can't always keep up with the team. I've given up on some things before that my mom made me take and she got angry at me those times when i told her i wanted to quit. Should i even give up on the swim team? If so, how can i make sure my mom won't get super angry?
