It’s so weird to be thought of as not good enough.
I mean, I do that to myself enough already without my in laws piling on.
From the time I started dating their daughter, it was made clear to me that I wasn’t their choice. My wife’s mom and dad have never approved of me as a husband to their daughter. And it’s always displayed in such a passive aggressive sort of way. Thank God, recreational marijuana is legal in this state. Otherwise, I think I’d just have to be unavailable whenever they are involved. If I know I have to go to a family gathering or they are coming to visit, I get by the local cannabis spot as quickly as I can. Not that I need a big reason to get to the cannabis dispensary. I’ve enjoyed recreational marijuana since I was in college. And in fact, so has the precious daughter of my in laws. But that’s not for her parents to know. That’s fine as that’s my wife’s business to tell anyway. I’m just so thankful that I can get to the local cannabis spot and get a supply of cannabis gummies. This at least allows me to smile through what would otherwise be excruciating passive aggressive behavior from my wife’s parents. I wish I could figure out what it is that makes it so tough for me to be accepted into that family. They act as though I’m sort of just present and accounted for when I’m in their midst. But after a decade, I’ve decided to just let it go because they are going to be them. And I’m going to be me so bring on the cannabis products if the in laws are staying any more than 20 minutes.
