IS U OK IS U GOOD CUZ I WANTED TO KNOW
I CAN’T DECIDE.
It’s great when our family and friends like our partners and support our relationships, but this isn’t always the case. When your parents don’t approve of your partner it can create a lot of tension and strain on your relationship with them. Here are some tips on how to handle the situation maturely:
· Find out their real reasons. They might say that they don’t like something about your partner, but there may be a bigger reason behind their disapproval that they aren’t telling you. They might not even realize what it is themselves until you talk about it. You won’t be able to move forward and try to resolve the issues until you know what they really are.
· Demonstrate your maturity. Your parents will never take your relationship seriously or be willing to reconsider their feelings towards your partner if you act like a baby. Whining, throwing a fit and letting your emotions get out of control are all things that you should definitely not do if you want to be taken seriously. Instead, show them how mature you are by being open and honest and talking with them without acting bratty and immature.
· Deal with their reservations head on. If you know that they don’t approve then don’t ignore it or hope it will go away. Deal with it head on and talk about it with them. Let them know that it bothers you that they don’t approve and that you want to work towards changing their minds. They’ll be impressed that you were mature enough to confront the situation rather than just ignoring it.
