Affirmations for MILs & DILs – Round 5

They keep coming in!

Here are a few from a woman whose DIL and daughter text her regularly during the day, including her in the messages to each another when sharing ideas, experiences and questions. A bit of comfort in those relationships, eh?


I will remind myself that my DIL has her way of doing things and I have mine. Neither is wrong – just different.

I will always give her space to build her own family. I need to let them establish their own home.

As a MIL, I will remember how it felt when I was the DIL and let that guide my words, attitudes and actions.


That last concept …. You MILs out there, didn’t you use it when you were raising teenagers? It helped, didn’t it?!

Do it.
