Take on the beast.
- First, sit with the self.
- Consider where your MIL is coming from.
- Ask yourself what role you're playing in the situation.
- Don't have any expectations.
- Be okay with not having their approval.
- Trust your instincts.
- Don't try to fake a relationship that isn't there.
- Be assertive.
Then, why you should never live with your mother in law?
It probably makes your blood boil just to think about it. But it turns out that living with the mother-in-law really can be bad for a woman's health. The stress of acting as daughter, mother and partner can damage the heart by causing high blood pressure and even diabetes.
Additionally, what is a toxic mother in law?
They don't call them monsters-in-law for nothing. Mothers-in-law are notorious for being controlling, judgmental, critical, and overbearing. And like any toxic person, a toxic mother-in-law is a soul-sucking parasite that feeds on your misery.
How do you know if your mother in law hates you?
These at the obvious signs your mother-in-law hates you. There are even times when your mother-in-law hates you for no apparent reason. Even though you didn't particularly do anything wrong to cause your MIL to hate you, there are certainly reasons why she does. You probably didn't do anything wrong you're just you.
Who comes first wife or mother?
As a mother and a wife, the wife must come first, then the mother. It isn't correct for a mother to interfere and take priority in her married son's life. That said, this is hopefully not a path that has to be walked - to me it's fine for my husband to spend time with his mother, just the two of them!
