I feel that by keeping her in his life, he is being slightly disrespectful to me, as she clearly still has some kind of hold over him for him to put up with this. His other friends and parents agree with me, but I can 8767 t get him see it from any other point of view.
I do want the woman I 8767 m with to be OK though I don 8767 t want her to worry or be upset. And I don 8767 t want her to see me as anything less than the man that I aspire to be the man that I am when I 8767 m at my best.
The bombshell came as a male former classmate of Omar Mateen said he had been asked out romantically by the mass killer, who reportedly was a virtual regular at the Pulse nightclub, having visited it more than a dozen times over the years.
You should be happy recognizing that you 8767 re single because it means you can have limitless options. It means that you are not imprisoned in a reality where you can 8767 t be happy unless you get a very, very specific outcome with one particular person.
The part about two of your children not being included however, seems worth addressing. You could call her directly (I would) and say 8775 That 8767 s a weekend I have all three of my children with me. Don 8767 t you agree it would be hurtful to leave two of my children behind? 8776
My dinner with for my MIL, is a BBQ at my MIL 8767 s with my Mom, husband, SD 8767 s and my husband 8767 s ex-wife and her hubby, (my kids will be with their Dad, and will not be able to attend), so my question is, why is his ex-wife and hubby coming along and why were we not invited to the first dinner?
Great article. I would add 8775 She 8767 s struggling with mental illness 8776 . This is the situation we 8767 re in. It 8767 s exhausting and difficult, especially when she 8767 s not doing well. I know I 8767 m supposed to let my husband deal with her, but a lot of the time I have no choice because her dysfunction is directed at me. Trying to be compassionate helps, but there are definitely times when I wonder whether it 8767 s all worth it.
I totally understand that there should be boundaries, but how can you set boundaries when her idea of boundaries if to pretend that you don 8767 t even exist She tells her ex-husband and her children that I, along with my daughter and the rest of my family, will never be an important part of her children 8767 s lives. She debates them on the fact that they now have a 8775 sister 8776 (step-sister). She tells them that her husband is a liar, and that he broke a promise to both her and her parents when they divorced. We get this from the 5-year old who brings up random things like this, and when we ask him where he heard it it 8767 s always 8775 from mommy 8776
I posted the long winded comment above. Forgot to add what originally drove me to this website, among others. I have been searching for answers. Why? Why is my husband 8767 s ex so hateful? Why does she cause issues that end up hurting her own kids? How can she tell such bold faced lies and look at herself in the mirror? Surely she must have a mental illness? She has a boyfriend, why does she even care about my husband and me enough to be so bitter and vengeful towards us?
Thank you, Shawn! I do find it helpful to look back at where you started and notice how much better things are now, even if they 8767 re not perfect. I hope we 8767 re all on a never-ending path of growth. 😉
