She literally doesn’t owe you anything. She doesn’t owe you her time, her truth, her energy, or an explanation of what’s in her fridge and why. The fact that your daughter is wary of telling you personal things is all on you and rather than look inward and ask yourself how you can be a better support system to her so that she might CHOOSE to share things with you, you are turning it around, making this an issue with HER, a deficit she has – she’s not proud of her decision, she’s not strong. No, she didn’t tell you because she knew you’d make it about yourself, get your feelings hurt, not know how to handle your hurt feelings, and so channel those hurt feelings into anger and judgment at your daughter, which is exactly what you did.

Keep behaving this way and your daughter won’t even want to FaceTime with you anymore.
