Our expert says:
A mother might be happy if you chose to chat about your life decisions with her, but is not entitled to be consulted on your choice of a new car, or your decision to become pregnant. This strongly suggests a mother more interested in living your life and in living her own.
There should be no need for you to humble yourself ever, or to artificially get her involved in your life. IF what you have said is what she was complaining of , then those were selfish and enurotic complaints and not at all your fault.
Don't allow this to "kill you emotionally ". If you leave her to boil in her own juices for a while, she may then choose to approach you and try to re-establish contact, and then it'd be useful for you to be welcoming but firm, and to make it clear that you'd likfe to be friendly, but will deek her advice only when youi wish to, just as she only seeks yours shen she chooses to.
Maybe then invite her to join you in some couples counselling, to sort out the differences that have distressed you both, with proper expert help. Leave her bitterness, which she created, in her own lap, and stop accepting invitations to blame yourself for bad choices she has made
