How do I handle a difficult mother-in-law?
Q: I am a working woman but the problem is that my husband and his family wants me to give my salary to them and I have nothing left with me. They also want me to work at home as a housewife and give up my job. How do I handle this situation? My mother-in-law is very rude and harsh. I am very depressed and feel like committing suicide so please help me out?
A:I believe that communication with empathy helps in family situations; involve yourself with family, and share your thoughts with your husband, share concerns but avoid getting into blaming. Also talk to your own family; take their views. Suicide is not a solution of any problem, and all problems can be handled and solved, with effort and time. Consider talking to a professional.
