SASL-Mother-in-Law-Problems

South African Sign Language Lessons – Mother in Law Problems

Your friends and family will always have opinions about your relationships, and these will intensify as you start talking about marriage. Unfortunately, not all of the opinions will be positive, and while you should never ignore them, you should also not let yourself be influenced by them without talking about them first. Many negative opinions are driven by personal beliefs, and even vendetta’s, but you won’t know for sure without discussing them with the person expressing negative opinions. Be open-minded about it, and genuinely listen to what the person has to say, and then respond without allowing anger to get in the way.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo advises a young woman whose mother-in-law has negative feelings about her marriage.
