My Mom Had Many Problems

He had been gaining weight and losing hair. She did not sleep, she bit her nails and her teeth screeched. She was irritable, grumpy and bitter, until one day, suddenly, she changed.

The situation was the same, but she was different.
One day, my dad told him:

– Old woman, I’ve been looking for a job for three months and I have not found anything, I’m going to have a few beers with the panas ”
My mom answered:

– Okay, you’re going to find beer.
My brother told him:

– Mom, I’m going bad in all the subjects of the University …
My mom answered:

– Okay, you will recover, and if you do not, you repeat the semester, but you pay the registration fee.
My sister told him:

– Mom, I hit the car.
My mom answered:

– Okay, take her to the workshop, look for how to pay and while they fix it, get on the bus, taxi, bus or subway.
His daughter-in-law told him:

– Mother-in-law, I come to spend a few months with you.
My mom answered:

– Okay, sit back in the lounge chair and look for some blankets in the closet.

Everyone in my mom’s house we met worried to see these reactions, we suspected that he had gone to the doctor and to prescribe some pills of “MeimportaUnCarajo” 1000 mg “. Surely he would also be ingesting an overdose. We proposed then to make an “intervention” to my mom to get her away from any possible addiction she had towards some anti-tantrum medication. But what was not the surprise, when we all gathered around her, and my mom explained to us:

“It took me a long time to realize that everyone is responsible for their life, it took me years to discover that my anguish, my mortification, my depression, my anger, my insomnia, my stress and my prayers, did not solve their problems but aggravated mine. I am not responsible for the actions of others, but I am responsible for the reactions I express to that. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that my duty to myself is to keep calm and let everyone solve what is his due.

I have taken courses in yoga, meditation, miracles, human development, mental hygiene, vibration and neurolinguistic programming, and in all of them, I found a common denominator: finally all lead to the same point. And I can only have interference with myself, you have all the necessary resources to solve your own lives. I can only give you my advice if they ask me, and it is up to you to follow it or not.

So, from now on, I cease to be the receptacle of his responsibilities, the bag of his sins, the laundress of his remorse, the lawyer of his faults, the wall of his laments, the depository of his duties, the resolves of your problems, or your spare tire to fulfill your responsibilities. From now on I declare to all independent and self-sufficient adults. “Everyone in my mom’s house was speechless.

From that day the family began to work better, because everyone in the house knows exactly what is theirs.
