On the road again...

Once again, I find myself in Newark airport, waiting for a flight.

This is my second trip to this particular destination in as many weeks; as you can tell, I'm in the middle of a shidduch.

Maybe it comes with the territory of being the youngest in the family, but it seems as if each one of my siblings feels compelled to give me a call in order to impart their pearls of wisdom. I don't usually mind, but when it's mostly unsolicited, and simultaneous, it can get to be a bit much...

Each one thinks that they're are helping "clear things up" for me, when in reality they're only added to the din and confusion. However, if you tell them as much, you run the risk of insulting them, and burning your bridges...

Talk about a rock and a hard place...

its probably more about alleviating their own anxieties than yours and youre doing them a favor by listening.. let the info slide into a lil corner of your brain and if it's ever actually required you'll know it's there somewhere.. but no need to internalize and stress yourself out over it all..
and.. good luck :)

just choose one person whose opinion you really respect, and talk to them for advice and stuff. everyone else's advice can go in one ear and out the other, if you like. unless of course it really resonates with you.

Take all advice with a grain of salt. Like this. :)

Get a bracha (and your advice)from an erliche Yid.
If nothing else it'll give you some piece of mind.

They all mean your best. Turn on your selective hearing, hear what you like ignore the rest.
