SicktothebackteethAfter spending an hour or so reading some of the posts...i feel compelled to write my own. Mine is almost 12 and is the spawn of Satan. Im not even gonna go into that too much, i wanted to comment on all those irritating people who feel they have any right to judge, pass comment, and generally 'stick their oar in'. I imagine most of those rather ignorant people dont even HAVE step kids. NO ONE could possibly understand the unbelievable strain a 'little person' can put on another human being, UNLESS THEY HAVE WALKED IN OUR SHOES.
Its the same as most of you!! I swear i think they taught her how to be the 'queen of manipulation' in pre school. My husband sees what she does but i've had enough and after three and a half years i'm not prepared to 'hold out the olive branch' anymore. I DON'T WANT to be her friend anymore. I dont want anything from her. And i can honestly say that is truly how i feel.
She has this wonderful way of walking around the house with this sad face making it look as though I'm being a spiteful vindictive cow, when in actual fact...shes trying to play us all like a fiddle!! Trouble is...as hard as i try not to...i feel this unbelievable amount of resentment towards her. And its spilling out into my relationship with her dad. I dont underdstand where all this has come from? I'm not sure if i love HIM enough to stick around? I couldnt imagine life without him, but the thought of having to endure another 'god knows how many years' with this little witch fills me with dread.
As sson as things go back to some form of 'normality' and i forgive her for whatver tiis she might have done, within two weeks or so she reverts right back to being a complete little sod again. And shes done sooooo many wicked things. Shes told the school ive abused her, phoned childline and said the same (I havent at all) Stabbed kids with pencils, locked them in cupboards,shes a thief, she's a compulsive liar. And i mean lies ABOUT EVERYTHING. Told her father she wants me to leave, to me she wishes i wasnt around and that it would be so much better if i was never here and it was just her and her dad.!!
When i read this back to myself i think to myself....'what the hell are you doing woman!!!!'...... 'why am i still here??'......Same as all of us on this site i guess....we love our partners..........xx
