Why is my mom so upset with me moving out?

So I am 18 years old and my boyfriend and I are moving into our first apartment. We both have stable jobs and we are both in college. About two days ago I went to pier 1 imports to buy some dinnerware and I came home to show my mom. I thought that she would be happy but she was rather indifferent. I know that My boyfriend is not the problem because we have been together for 4 years and my parents and him get along very well. Yesterday I put up some of my belongings that I didnt want to take with me for sale on craigslist and I sold a few things ( about 120.00 worth) and when I went to meet the girl, I came home and my mom was yelling at me telling me that she was so worried about me being desperate for money...I calmed her down and I told her that I wasn't desperate that those Items I no longer needed and the extra cash was for some extras for my apartment. I move out in march that is when my lease starts but I don't want to leave on bad terms. I am ready to have my own place..I mean I already pay for most of the bills where I am living now! I just don't understand why she is so upset with me? ( If it matters any, I was supposed to move out last year but she stopped me, she told me I was selfish and didn't care about her or my I stayed out of guilt.)

She is upset because her child is moving out she still thinks of you as her baby. Just say you will see her every time you can. She will be upset and then she will get used to it!! All the best to you and you're boyfriend and good luck with you're mum. Xxxx

She's trying to hold on to you and your financial assistance. You are not here to support her or your siblings. Good luck on your move and new start!

Try telling her you need to be on your own now but will visit, call regularly. This may help. But do NOT share with her of selling stuff, she'll be worried you can't pay rent or eat. The less you say the better.

She's angry at you cause your her little girl and her most valuable possession. She doesn't want to let you go.. So I'm guessing she takes that emotion and makes it into anger
