Accepting

Accepting is not easy. Accepting that I’m living with my Mother in law forever is not easy. Removing that hatred is not easy. When I see my husband’s face every morning I smile. When I see her face every morning, the feelings of hatred in my heart just surfaces. Accepting cos I have no choice. She is not a bad person. Accept it. Forgive her for being old. One day I will be old too. And I don’t know how I will be like then. Accept it. Live with it. Be happy.

Ooh, nirah007, I read your blog post and I couldn’t not reply. Accepting isn’t easy. 

3 years ago I moved in with my dad (he’s 91 now), presumably to help him out, take care of him,  so neither one of us would be alone, blah blah blah. My daughter, who is just a light in my life, came with me and it’s been the 3 of us for the last 3 years.  Then she moved to NorCal and bam!!! I find myself having to accept that I’m living with him for like always. And I try to think about how it must be hard to be in his shoes. But I’m having a hard time accepting it. 

I smile and nod and pray for  my heart to change toward him. I hope this gets better for us, I think having your husband’s smiling face will make all the difference for you  

 

(((hugs)))))

Thanks for your reply, it feels better to know I'm not alone in this world, having to force myself to live with someone I do not want to. And keep telling myself words that I don't really believe in, yet I hope by repeating it to myself the words become real. I have never really loved my mother in law, but she is not that bad I guess.  I'm glad for you it's your own dad whom you have known since young, but taking care of old people is not easy. I hope things gets better for us too!
