Right now in a family function and am Fuming.. Correct me if am wrong.. my family has always teased me and sometimes even humiliated me and so honestly these days I don’t even know the difference between fun and insults.. My cousin,his wife,uncle and aunt arrived.. my cousin’s wife never even says a hi and everytime I start the conversation to make things comfortable.However,she is okay saying hi ,resuming conversation and being fun with everyone around.With me there is a stern face and after I say hi she reacts and then it’s cool.This time I refused to even react.I did not say anything and she didn’t care.So I left it. My aunt came to me and said “My granddaughter did not poop for five days..please show her your face.It will make her poop”..this comment the family makes many times when we meet,I laugh it off but this time I got irritated. I felt am also older,married,a mom and not a teen anymore and my relatives have to stop being so funny. Then my cousin came and said “My daughter did not poop for few days as you must know.Please show your face”.. Well they thought it was humorous but this time I don’t know why I had my “Moment of irritation”.. I didn’t want to react so sat down with my phone.My aunt then said “All the time she is with that phone”.. I just burst out in anger and shouted “do you have the guts to say this to your daughter in law and the other relatives? Is it always me ?”.. Then my uncle got angry and said we don’t want to talk to you anymore..I screamed and said ” yeah when anything happens, it’s tomato chutney in my case but bloodshed in your case”.. I got up and now in a room...I have calmed down but don’t know why I burst out like that..This is supposed to be a small issue..usually I have so much self control,smile it off but what happened to me today?Why did I get so angry? Is it wrong to expect to get some basic respect?I have tolerated their taunts and many others for more than two Decades..I started questioning myself why should I take it anymore.. However..I don’t know why I overreacted today..They could have been funny but why I felt insulted? How do u control anger?
