The other day I read a post that made my stomach drop..
At first i read it out loud because i felt it was good to tell my husband things i would want him to know
To my horror I realized it came from the heart of a bitter woman that wanted attention for her self..
The mother I perceived from the article
Wanted to be number one rather than children.
Oblivious of responsibility of being a step parent
Despising their presence
If that’s how you feel as a step parent you shouldn’t be there
I believe it’s a packaged deal.
If you can’t accept their children why expect them to accept yours
You cannot single out children that are now part of your life
You chose to be there.
If they come in your bedroom and they are little. it’s not like they are an abomination
If you feel like that then leave.
I’m not saying it’s easy or pleasant but acting like they are the end of the world is awful for them
I was the ignored step kid that was an annoyanc .
Its wrong and harsh. We didnt ask for you to come in.
To demand all I’d dad’s attention is wrong. We are only here till 18 or move out
You spend the rest of your life with him
I am a step mother and a step child.
I am speaking from the heart of both sides.
No one cares to hear about an ex but If they are genuine about their kids let it be.
They aren’t asking to bed your man. They love their kids.
Be grateful not all of them do. My step children’s mom disappeared two years ago.
Thanks to the mindset of woman like the article I read there are severed bonds, missed opportunities and depressed children.
Please think before you act on worrying about your needs or wants.
Blood relation shouldn’t change things.
