Building a bridge


Sometimes I just want to run and hide from the world. I hate drama in general however it seems to follow me around. I’m sure we all feel that way. But I guess some days feel worse then others.

We have all done things we regret in life but I think the argument with the mother-in-law is one of the all time nightmares for either spouse. Till today I regret the argument. Mind you I wasn’t entirely wrong all together, the argument was something about him being my husband 1st and her son 2nd (according to her) and the other way around (according to me). However it was not the content of the argument which I regret but the way I handled my selve. The phrase keep calm had defiantly flown out the window that day, and because of that I now have to relive that miserable day every time my husband and I get into an argument ourselves.

Now please note the mother-in-law and I are way over it. You could even say it made us much closer, understand each other better and where we both are coming from, but unfortunately it has given my dear husband the bragging rights of never having such an argument with my side of the family. So now I have to bare it every time he brings it up and I’m just Annoyed that he keeps mentioning it.

I really wish he would build a bridge and come join his mother and I on the other side!

I’m sure he will eventually but what do I do in the meantime? Should I stick to my plan of action and keep quite? Or should I tell him that the building material is now available and the bridge needs to be built ASAP?

I guess time will tell.. Watch this space

  1. It’s never easy when dealing with your own emotions and others. Some times things happen and you just need to explode to get things off your chest, Us women do tend to bottle up and then burst, and once its done its over (like how men are hitting each other one minute and laughing the next) its the way we deal with it.
    Maybe the next time he brings it up you should mention (as calmly as you can) that because of that particular argument you and his mother now feel closer and even though it wasn’t the correct way that no one is perfect. I am sure that it would make him stop and think for a second.
