v8vachon Posted February 27, 2007 Share Posted February 27, 2007 I have a 12 yr old step daughter that I love dearly, however, between her hormones and mine, I lost it, it being the desire to embrace, please and accept. I am battling feelings or resentment or biterness towards her that I cannot help but show in my actions. What has she done? Nothing other than be herself and deal with her own little world. she lives with us, my husband and I have a 2 yr old of our own. That's gotta be tough on a 12 yr old to bare at times. I have exausted my "love" tank, there is no more fuel (tolerance) in me for her attitude, disrespect and plain just ungrateful behavior at times, my husband supports me to some degree, but he defends her as well, why not? she is his first born. I just feel as though it's me against her and I hate it. I'd like to know your experiences to hopefully find some hope in mine. thanks Quote Link to comment
