I am able to manage my mind with everyone and every thing else but my mother in law. She triggers me every time and I become this toddler who rages and exhausts myself every time. It causes a divide between me and my husband as I feel he always defends her, neve takes my side. My thoughts are terrible about her – she is judgemental, dumb, rude, racist, unkind, manipulative – i am not proud to admit this. How do I turn this around? She is in our lives, i cant change that, how can we co-exist when we are at such opposite ends of the world in how we view everything?
Your mother is your greatest teacher.
She is judgemental….so are you of her are you not?
She is unkind…so perhaps are you?
I want you to see her with compassion.
She is a human being.
She is flawed.
She is doing the best she can, that may not be all that good, but it is the best she has got right now.
You turn it around by opening up, letting it Be, letting it go and managing your mind my friend.
You have got this – she is doing all of this for you, not to you. When you truly see this you will no longer see her as a trigger anymore. Just a human being, beautifully flawed just like you.
