I had an unpleasant experience this noon when my mother-in-law called me and gave me a 45 minutes lecture over the phone.
It was not an experience that anyone wants to go through.
You feel trapped. You can’t tell her to shut up and neither can you hang up the phone.
You can if you want to have a tough life ahead.
As for the reasons why she was so super mad, I shall keep it brief as it was not so ideal to wash dirty linen in the public.
We haven’t been visiting her for a couple of while and she was furiously mad.
I have many thoughts running through my mind when she was lecturing.
You know about the fight or flight mode we go throuogh naturally when we are in “danger”.
I feel my life is endangered while listening to her.
It was worst than public speaking and I felt myself drowning.
My voice was trembling as if I was badly shaken by the whole ordeal.
Oh dear, I wonder will this post scare the hell out of some wedding couples who have monstrous mothers-in-law?
I was comtemplating if I should tell her the turth just to soothe her. In the end, you know what I did.
I did this which makes her vent all her negative emotions out and eventually she hung out the phone and all I say is”Urh” and “Yes”
It was indeed the toughest call I have made. Oh my, worst than making those darned cold call I have made in the past.
If you can conquer this call, you can do any cold call to anyone.
Another stupid happened just as I was leaving my centre. A stupid young fella walked past our centre, pressed the bell and ran off. I shouted at him and cursed him in my mind.
What a way to end my day?
I thank you for “hearing” me out by reading my post. I still feel mad for having to be caught in this kind of situation. But now I do feel better a bit.
I hope newly-wed couples who are reading this post are not truamatised by what I have described.
It may be better. Or it may be worse.
One thing that I learnt today: If the husband is caught in the line of fire between the two ladies, the ideal solution is to come out with some “white lies” to alleviate the matter.
Yes, you may have committed a sin. But the intention is good so as to avoid a catastrophy.
