Well, just talked to my 20 year old - who's been having a very difficult time with his. My stbx - (her stepdad who has been with her since she was 8) went to see her tonight. She said that they had a nice time and it was easier for her and he "seemed like his old self". They're having dinner on Tues. I am glad for her because this has been very hard for her, so, yes, I said all the right things - "That's great honey. I'm so glad...blah, blah." And I am glad for her because she really loves him. But I also feel kinda pissed off!!!! I know it's a bit childish, but he seems to be working hard to rebuild all the relationships he has because of me. I just feel sort of disposed of. And I'm the one that always held it all together and was supportive and acted like an adult. Last time I saw him he said he "couldn't wait to be free of the pets, the kids, the responsiblity." (I would NEVER tell my kids he said that) Just kinda chaps my ass. O.K. I'm done now.
