For most of my life, I've been prevented from having too much contact with an aunt who likes to create unecessary drama. After I converted to Islam, I realized that I must uphold ties with her. I can't contact her at the moment because I don't have a phone and I know I won't be allowed to call her. I know she will interrogate me about my life and there are many things I would not like to speak to her about. She will probably gossip about me if I answer her questions and that's something I'd prefer to avoid.

How should I deal with her and how can I let her know that I don't want to talk about my life without offending her? Should I just answer her questions and let her gossip about me? How should I go about this? I don't really care if people talk about me, it's just that my mother may feel ashamed of me. It's not that I did or am planning to anything wrong, it just that what I am doing is looked down upon and this may humiliate my mother.
