Parenting by your in laws

Okay I know I spoke about cutting people slack just yesterday. But I forget to mention a very important point – please do not cut your in laws any slack. Especially if they are Indian and absolutely refuse to acknowledge that you’re an adult woman and have been behaving one for at least half of last decade.

And no, you’re not going to know this off the bat. This fact that your Indian in laws are never going to stop parenting you (read your husband and by extension, you) will come as a surprise and here’s the best surprise of it all – 👏🏼 you 👏🏼 cannot 👏🏼 do 👏🏼 anything 👏🏼 about 👏🏼 it 👏🏼

Do you hear me?? NOTHING. It’s the hardest and the best lesson in this life – there’s nothing you can do about it. You’re not going to be able to (read allowed to) confront them and say fucking politely that maybe it’s time they took a really long trip.

So what’s the next best thing you can do? Take that really long trip yourself.

Go for a walk.
