I married my husband a year ago and he has three children. Two of his children live with us and the other one lives at another house. Weird arrangement but their mother passed away 6 years ago from cancer, the eldest was hit the hardest and decided a year ago to move in with her mothers best friend and family. Problem is, after two years I have not really spent anytime with her and she carries a lot of anger about her mother dying. She wants to meet with my husband and I and the girls over the holidays, but I can not find the motivation to meet her or have anything to do with her. I politely declined because I am spending time with my sister who I have not seen in years. I feel bad about this, but its the way I feel. I really do not want to spend time with her, and I know spending time with her would be the right thing to do. I just cant seem to muster the courage or strength to do it. I am still getting used to being a stepmother to the two other girls and the run of emotions I have about them are favorable and unfavorable. Does anyone have any advice or thoughts on how I should handle this?
