A lil envy
Vandu's predicament is something so relatable.
The gentle art of saying 'no'.
I think we fear saying no cause it will border on being rude and selfish. But somewhere down the line , we end up frustrated Cos we wanted to be nice and don't prioritize or value our time.
It gets even more diffucult to say ' no' to elders. And we end up getting stuck in situations.
Vandu has a lot already on her plate and has spread herself thin as it is .Bala , take cover, srividya is going to crucify you today
. You hv got it coming, sir.
But you do question life's fairness when a husband is able to look away and say no to his wife on her face but is pussy footing around his relatives not being able to say no. After a point , one begins to look willingly stupid not even realizing that they are being taken for granted.
Many of us here would hv gone through situations like this.
I for one, slowly hv started to say no. For ex, I forced my hubs to tell his friend who is coming with his family here to book a hotel stay as our ac unit is down and it wasn't exactly comfortable to do that.
