Just like Romeo and Juliet, love may turn sour and the whole world turns wilderness if you are prevented from continuing with the person you love so dear.
Now the question arises, ‘What to do if one is unfortunate enough to get stuck in such a situation?’
As this is a universal problem and such an old one, people have done several types of research and pieces of advice have traveled from word of mouth that, if one plays their cards right that perfect balance of having a peaceful and balanced life could be achieved.
1. Don’t keep it a secret
If you decide to hide your relationship on the basis that you have an inkling that your parents will disapprove your relationship this especially is the time to take them in confidence and let them know.
It is better that they find out from you than from someone else.
2. Sit back, think, and evaluate rationally
In such situation, you start to look at the world from coloured glasses and at a time your judgments turn biased when it comes to your partner. Maybe your parents have seen something that you, in your high esteem, missed. After all, they cannot want anything bad for you. you need to chill and objectively consider the situation
3. Take the time to clear the air
Understand your parents’ point, don’t argue, take time to clear issues with them, especialy their misconception, you can employ a more respected person who must have understood such misconception
4. Don’t turn your back on family
No matter how difficult they can be, your parents and siblings are and will always be your first family. keep god relationship even while the disagreement is on.
5. Pay attention to your tone
If your tone is harsh, or if you find yourself yelling because your parents do not support you, remember that loud words often mean that you do not have valid reasons to support your theory.
If you know in your heart of hearts that you are right, try to persuade your parents of the same thing. Shouting will not take you anywhere.
6. Do not take any side blindly
Whose side are you on?
A question that many people can relate to, ‘Whose side are you on?’ A simple answer is that ‘Do not take any side blindly’.
It is not fair for you or anyone to be in a position where they would have to choose between their loved one and family but, with authority comes responsibility.
Word of the wise
Try to work it out, and find the balance. Know when is the time to keep on trying or to bow out. No one can be happy in a toxic environment. Remember, no one has it all, we are just stumbling through life, trying to make the best of it.
