At Christmas, we went to visit my in-laws. I don't get to see them very often and I really enjoy getting to know them better. They are great people and they've never done or said anything wrong to me and we've never even had bad words between us. I talk to them pretty often
What I didn't know until this last Saturay is that a picture of me while we were visiting, has been flying back & forth between all of Dh's family member. They have all been talking about me & basically saying what a horrible person I am.
The picture? I am sitting on a barstool and my mil is sitting on a regular chair. So I'm higher up than she is. I don't even know what was being said, but she was laughing her head off about something and there I am on the barstool, glaring down at her with this look on my face that basically looks like I'm saying, "You stupid &&*(((( B*&&^" or something like that. It's just a really foul look on my face and it looks like I hate her. Which is made worse by the fact that I'm 2 feet higher than she is!!
I do not know why my face had such a rotten expression! But it's one of those where you really can't talk your way out of it, the living proof is right there in the picture. But I have never, ever had those kind of feelings about her! Ever!! I wish I could remember what I was thinking or doing at the time!
I am feeling a little sick at my stomach over the whole thing, knowing they have all been so upset at me & think I'm such a monster.
