    Default My mother criticized me

    Please would you take a look at these two sentences and correct them. I am not sure if I had used the correct tense in the second sentence.

    My mother criticized me all the time, which made me angry. I told myself that she would stop when she had understood that I did not follow her advice.

    My suggested version is above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
