    I think she knew that for her to succeed in any way in life she had to break from her family (meaning they would not accept her not following in their footsteps).  That is a tough decision for someone young because she does love her family.  She recognizes their faults in which there a lot but loves them anyway.  I hope for her she can one day bond with her mother again.  That seemed to be the hardest part for her.
