Pranam to all Prabhus, and Devotees,
I am suffering through a bad phase in my life, and undergoing a great depression. I can't focus on anything and seek some direction and guidance.
Little about myself. I am new to the Krishna devotion and have started learning Bhagwad Gita recently to find solution on my life trouble.
The problem I am facing is an emotional distress due to unhealthy relationship between my mother and my wife.
I am in US & my old parents are in India. I got married (arrange) a couple years back in India to an indian girl and my wife came to US with me.
But things didn't go well between my wife and my mother when I was in India for marriage and then after marriage.
Now I am here in US, but whenever she gets a chance my wife talks trash about my mother.
She uses bad words talks about how my mother is bad.
Whenever I think of bringing my parents here to stay with me, things go south with my wife.. she picks fight with me, uses bad words for my mother and also threatens me of divorce.
Her point is I should either choose her or my parents.
I love my parents, I love my mother... I understand the chillness behavior of my wife.
I do understand that my mother knowingly or unknowingly must have hurt her...
It hurts when she uses bad words while talking with my parents, she talks of taking a revenge on my mother. I wanted to bring my parents to US to give them a better life, but my wife is not leaving any chance for denying them this opportunity.
It is stressful, my parents suffered a lot for raising me, then sacrificed lot of things to get me here.
But now when it is my chance of giving them happiness and better life I have been blocked.
I love my parents and my wife... but I am getting hurt by seeing behavior of my wife towards my old parents.
Memories, thoughts of my parents their sacrifices hunt me every now and then.. I am getting into depression.
I tried to explain this to my wife hundred of times, but she does not understand, she is full of revenge thoughts.
Prabhuji's please help me... I am going through a daily stress. Thoughts of my parents and my unstable married life is hunting me and killing me from inside.
