Re: Blending two families

It is better to be alone than to deal with drama everyday. It is much better for the kids involved, too.

Now, stop waiting on him and live your life "as if." As if you are already over him. As if you are content with what you have and with who you are. As if you have a new goal set for yourself and you're well on your way to achieving it. Before long, "as if" will become "as it is."

Good luck.

Re: Blending two families

The final chapter to this story....

I had ended this the day I sent my last post on here. As you can imagine he was constantly trying to contact me to get me to talk to him.
I met him in a neutral place and we discussed how this situation came to be..
Basically I wanted one more night and he wasn't ready to give me one, which lead to the constant battle seen on here.

Bottom line he would not budge. I stood up said goodbye and walked away. As I got up he is saying ok. You can have the Saturday, lets spend more time together. It took all my strength to not look back.

I am feeling miserable that after all that he finally offered me what I wanted and I turned it down, but, I feel just as miserable while I go through the grief process. At least I know there grief will pass and I will move on.

Now, to take that first step forward.

You already took the first step forward when you did not look back. Good for you!

Re: Blending two families

((hugs))


I think you'll be better off in the long run, if the only way he'd "hear" you was if he thought you were giving an untimatum - it didn't bode well for the future
