Ever since I quite my job to prepare for civils, relatives have become rather inquisitive regarding me. I have requested my parents not to tell them that I am preparing and say that I am continuing as before, but everytime they talk/meet them, they'll try to ask about me. Living outside of home has become expensive so that option isnt available. My parents arent willing to continue saying that I am still working but if they do tell them, even the days of results would become a nightmare as has been the case during my board exams as well as those of my siblings. So I do not want them to mention this. This has become a constant source of arguments among ourselves and adding to the uncertainty of the exam, it is a bane while at home.
It is always the best idea to ignore the naysayers but when they start influencing your only support system i. e. family and parents, life becomes a living hell.
What ways did u guys employ/are still employing to keep such nuisance at bay?
