"Welcome to WiseWomenUnite.com -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler. Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough. How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering? What do we do when there are communication problems? How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden? And how do our family members feel about these issues? We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Quote from: Pooh on January 02, 2014, 06:01:48 amI learned this the hard way in a male-female relationship. I in no way, shape or form "need" a man to take care of me. I have always been a very capable, independent woman who can work, take care of the house, including yard work, etc. What I found out about myself over the years was in knowing that I didn't "need" anyone, I made the other person feel horrible. It had nothing to do with the fact that I couldn't do it all myself, but I was telling the other person that they were not needed....therefore not wanted (in their head).

I think one of the biggest life's lessons I learned was that no one is responsible for my happiness but myself.
