Jess5638 Posted December 24, 2019 Share Posted December 24, 2019 My father has a new girlfriend. I am his only child and I have never seen him with a partner as him and my mother broke up when I was a baby and since then his life has been about me I suppose. My mother married my step father shortly after their breakup and I will admit, me and my brother (from another father) never got along with him. I suppose we always felt left out as they had new children together, despite the fact my mother did try to include us. Anyway, for the first time I’ve ever seen my father has a new partner. I am so happy for him don’t get me wrong, but I’m so scared that I will be forgotten about. She has children of her own and I just do not know how to express to him my feelings. I am so happy he has someone, but I’m terrified he will have a new family and I will be forgotten, especially as my dad has been such a huge part of my life since I was born. It’s just something I don’t know how to process and I feel like it’s strange that I feel like this when I should just be happy for him. Why am I like this, is it normal to need time to process this? Thank you! Link to comment
