Rekomendasi Topik Obrolan Saat Kumpul Keluarga Besar

Ketika saya bikin voting kecil-kecilan di Instagram Story, ternyata cukup banyak teman yang ‘malas’ untuk kumpul keluarga karena takut ditanya macam-macam ‘kapan ___?’ (kapan lulus, kapan nikah, kapan punya anak, kapan nambah anak, sampai kapan pensiun). Selain malas ditanya-tanya, mungkin ada juga yang malas silaturahmi karena keluarganya besar banget sampai-sampai bingung mereka ini siapa dan hubungannya apa. Iya, itu saya dulu :’)

Saya pernah cerita kalau saya ini introvert dan waktu masih kecil sering uring-uringan kalau diajakin kumpul keluarga besar. Keluarga besar ini bukan sekedar om tante sepupu satu nenek loh ya, tapi keluarga yang lebih ‘jauh’ lagi, misalnya saudara-saudara keturunan dari sepupunya kakek saya. NAH LOH~

Namun, semakin saya tumbuh dewasa dan punya keluarga sendiri, saya malah jadi kagum dan ingin mengikuti semangat bersilaturahmi Ayah & Bunda saya. Ditambah lagi, suami saya pun keluarganya terbilang besar, sehingga saya pun terus berlatih untuk bisa ngobrol dan kenal lebih dekat dengan keluarga besar saat kumpul. Memang sih, sulit untuk bisa kenal dan akrab dengan semua, tapi ya adalah ngobrol sedikit-sedikit. Sebisa mungkin jangan sampai saat silaturahmi kita main ponsel dari saat datang sampai pulang :””)

Terutamaaaa….. yang pengantin baru dan baru dibawa ke keluarga pasangan :’)

Oleh karena itu, saya coba menuliskan beberapa topik obrolan saat kumpul keluarga besar ya, mudah-mudahan bisa bermanfaat.
