Wisdom Wednesdays: Featuring Dr. Sidney Wang
Thank you for your patience while I was away on my retreat last week. I attended a Buddhist fish retreat, where I enjoyed soothing aloe treatments to my scales, and nibbled on fresh seaweed, while swimming in a special tank of cucumber infused water. Truly magnificent. I highly recommend it. But now it is time for me to answer another faithful reader. This week's letter comes from Sandy, in Braintree, Massachusetts. Sandy writes:
Dear Dr Wang,
I think I have finally reached my limit with "Doris", my mother-in-law. Doris has been meddling in my family affairs for the past 15 years and I have held my tongue all this time. Last week I discovered that Doris has been telling my own kids that their father loves them more than I ever will. These are my own children she is speaking to. I confronted my husband and he laughs it off and suggests I should tell off Doris. I'm at the point where I am ready to do exactly that, but I must say I am not sure how she will respond. What do you see in my future?
Meddled to death,
Dr Wang responds: Dear Sandy,
Let me start by saying that I am not a marriage counselor, and I think you should consider seeing one right away. Your husband needs to be more sensitive to your concerns. But in response to your specific question, I have consulted The Great Bubble Wall and indeed have clarity of what is in store for you with this situation. Your mother-in-law Doris is not to be trusted. She is a lecherous sea creature from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and will strike at any moment. You must confront Doris about what you learned she has been telling your children, and express your feelings bluntly. The truth will hit her heart like a harpoon, but it will set you free from her grip. After this confrontation, her tentacles will loosen their grip on your family. The best time for this confrontation with Doris is before the next full moon, otherwise the tides will cause more consternation than you bargained for. Best of luck!
Keep swimming upstream,
