Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

Inlaws and parents may not be healthy for your relationship

I am going to use a mythical conversation between an adult lady who is divorced and her mother. I am not saying all mothers or even any mother is as portrayed here, rather illustrating how we need to be careful of what we say about others, or we may cause more harm than good.

A Conversation with Mom…

Mother: ‘Hello?’

Daughter: ‘Hi Mom. Can I leave the kids with you tonight?’

Mother: ‘You’re going out?’

Daughter: ‘Yes.’

Mother: ‘With whom?’

Daughter: ‘With a friend.’

Mother: ‘I don’t know why you left your husband. He is such a good man.’

Daughter: ‘MOM, I didn’t leave him. He left me!’

Mother: ‘You let him leave you, and now you go out with anybodies and nobodies.’

Daughter: ‘MA, I do not go out with anybody. Can I bring over the kids?’

Mother: ‘I never left you to go out with anybody except your father.’

Daughter: ‘There are lots of things that you did and I don’t.’

Mother: ‘What are you hinting at?

Daughter: ‘Nothing. I just want to know if I can bring the kids over tonight..’

Mother: ‘You’re going to stay the night with him? What will your husband say if he finds out?’

Daughter: ‘MA, its My EX husband. I don’t think he would be bothered. From the day he left me, he probably never slept alone!’

Mother: ‘So you’re going to sleep over at this loser’s place?’

Daughter: ‘MOM, He’s not a loser.’

Mother: ‘A man who goes out with a divorced woman with children is a loser and a parasite.’

Daughter: ‘MA, I don’t want to argue; should I bring over the kids or not?’

Mother: ‘Poor children with such a mother.’

Daughter: ‘Such a what?’

Mother: ‘With no stability. No wonder your husband left you.’

Daughter: ‘ENOUGH MA!!!’

Mother: ‘Don’t scream at me. You probably scream at the loser too!’

Daughter: ‘Great MA, Now you’re worried about the loser?’

Mother: ‘Ah, so you see he is a loser and I spotted him immediately.’

Daughter: ‘Goodbye, mother.’

Mother: ‘Wait! Wait! Don’t hang up! When are you bringing them over? ‘

Daughter: ‘I’m not bringing them over! I’m not going out!’

Mother: ‘If you never go out …how do you expect to meet anyone?”
