There’s often that “impress” “fit in” “prove yourself” to his family. I’ve been there! And yours are….cue the crickets. And I’ve heard others with same thing. I think it’s the “man” the old school “son” and in a lot of cases “sun” haha!
But seriously it can be distressing, distracting and unfair.
For a start don’t run yourself ragged proving yourself.
I was losing my mind and the family got quite intrusive and rude till I snapped.
You don’t want it to get to that.
Talking to your husband can fall on deaf ears.
Just start owning your own goodness and start stating things.
Like “enough with putting down my family. It hurts” that way your just stating how you feel. Firmly and respect is a two way street. You respect his family they respect you. We have to make a firm stand. It’s 2019! And don’t be available sometimes. Are you doing all the cooking for the family or prep make sure hubbies helping.
