    God I Hate Her..

    I know this is horrible but I do hate her so. She has caused me so much pain and misery in my life. She almost cost me my child. She still chooses to this day my husbands EXWIFE over me. She still sees her children (none are my husbands) over my 2 year old. She hasn't seen him...

    I'm wondering if I should set my grudges aside

    and just "forgive" her after her whole 2 year mental tirade. Everyone says you find "peace" by forgiving but I question myself if this is the right thing to do....I have a hard time forgiving and have a harder time forgetting the sh*t she put me through.

    Deal with It...

    Have you ever noticed that people who blantantly disregard boundaries and disrespect you never seem to acknowledge their role and/or behavior?  It is almost like a person never knows they stink or have bad breath, one of nature's jokes I suppose.  The same holds true...
