What lessons am I learning right now?
Yesterday, my parents asked me about a glass container I had in my refrigerator. While looking for something to drink, I heard my dad ask, “What is this in this bottle? It looks like beer.” I told my dad that it wasn’t beer that it was the almond milk I made myself (which is super easy). My mom chimed in with, “I don’t know why you do these things. What you’re doing is expensive and it’s not good for you. At least the milk in the store is pasteurized…”
Normally, I would have something passive-aggressive to say to her. Naturally I wanted to dispute everything she said because it wasn’t true. Actually, none of what she said was the truth. But in that moment, I just held my peace. There are just some people who will just be against whatever you’re for. You know them as advocates of the Devil. It didn’t serve me to try to explain my actions to her, as my dad would’ve misinterpreted it as “arguing” and my mom is stubborn. Nope. I’ve learned that you got to let some people have their opinion, even when it does not match your own.
