I know I was a bit wound up before I went over to my parents today. I know I walked in feeling on the defensive. Something about this Aunt makes my back tense up.
I have been trying to figure out what it is about this Aunt that just makes my tense… After the 10th time of hearing it directed towards everyone in the room, I finally heard it…
You know what you need?
She’s the unsolicited advice aunt. She’s also the “forced fun” Aunt.
The forced fun Aunt is the one forever having problems in her love life so she comes to babysit preteen kids with board games like “Candy Land” while she tries to get a 10 year olds advice on how to date through facebook.
It’s been an entire afternoon of “You know what you need?” I think I handled it better then I once would have. But I still feel like I have been dissected and run through a cheese grater. It’s weird how something like this will make me feel physically cold, scattered and so tired.
I’m going to be trying to get warm the rest of the night. To bad the kid sis had to kill our heater a few weeks ago. It gets fixed next week. Just in time for the warmer weather.
Do other people get physical reactions from emotional discomfort?
