comment Ways to remove “filtering” in narration?
Interesting. I didn't think of that. I wonder, though, why filtering makes the narrator sound less confident?

comment Is it strange to describe the narrator's facial expressions in a first-person narrative?
So you wouldn't consider the second examples as "telling not showing"? But something that comes natural to first-person narration?

comment What to do with cliched metaphors?
When the mother asks "are you all right?" she's referring to her health (the cold that the daughter previously mentions). Hence, not getting what she wants to say: that there's something else aside from health. I think this is my fault, though. I didn't post the whole thing. I wanted to keep the question brief.

Actually in the end I listened to your advice, ha (and what's). I changed it into this: "Like she'd focus on my individual words instead of what they said as a whole." What do you think of that one? (What happens is that the mother is listening to her daughter, but not understanding what she wants to say.)

Well, actually the mother isn't disagreeing with her. She just doesn't get her point/meaning. Which is that happens when two people are speaking different languages.
