Everyone knows how lucky they are to have an Aunt especially one who lives far away and one you don’t have to see too often! So what do you do when you are a successful professional single woman living in the city and your Aunt from the country comes to stay… indefinitely!

Answer? Simple - you suffer! Suddenly the life you were perfectly satisfied with is no longer your own. Your Aunt’s criticisms range from your job, to your friends to your home. She infringes on your personal space, ruins your plans and nags you until you relent, exhausted. Your attempts to resist are in vain and your efforts to run, futile. However, your Aunt is not your enemy and to misunderstand her intentions would be a mistake. While her efforts to help and take care of you may be clumsy and often backfire, her motive comes from love. Your Aunt is your friend who puts your happiness above her own… you just hadn’t noticed it before.
