I have a 23 year old and a 17 year old daughter. I had both of my girls before I was 22. I was a single mom for a long time and worked my butt off to provide for them. My girls often talk negatively about me behind my back and when we argue they tell me what the other sister said about me because they know it hurts my feelings. I feel so worthless. Like all of my efforts were never good enough. I must have done something wrong for them to talk about me the way they do. They have both said separately that I make their lives miserable and that they can't be around me for very long. I can't help but feel like the older one has planted these things into the younger ones mind? Until the younger one turned 16, she was never mean like this. I guess what I'm trying to say is, how do I not let this affect me? It hurts my feelings so deeply. They are old enough to know how much I hurt and they don't seem to care. *Before assumptions are made, they have never lived in an abusive or harsh environment. They have always been provided for. They have always been loved and have always known that they were loved. I was both mom and dad to them, and did my best to find balance.*
I am in need of some help! I am having a hard time with my 12-year old (step) daughter. A little back story, I have been a part of her life going on seven years now. I have her and three younger daughters (we are a blended family: yours, mine and ours). I love my oldest very, very much, and she has been through a lot in her life. Her mother does not play an active role in her life...at all. No...
I was wondering if anyone could pry for my family to be reunited. I am a foster and just recenlt leared that we probley wont be and everyone tells me that theres no hope but I want to prove them wrong, I want to show them that there is always hope in God and he can do anything at any time.Thanks
