I hate my step daughters
I can't stand my adult step daughters 43 & 37....as they are jealous of my kids and refer to them as cousins,can't acknowledge anything good or bad that happens to us, and are mean to their father and talk s*** about him to his family. They want gifts, money, and to be treated as equals to our own kids. They overtly disapprove of our life, having kids in our 40's, even vacations. We act sorta pleasant outwardly but an idiot would know how we all feel. i.e. one who lives an hour away hasn't been invited to our home in over 2 years. Their mom is mentally ill and they are both bi polar as an added bonus acting mean never apologizing ever and then pretending it is all good! So we pretend back that it is all good. It is so crazy and dysfunctional.My husband and I have both been to therapy to cope with it but the conclusion is a family blow out is not good for us so we just get passive. If their father dies before me I will never speak to them again.
