At my breaking point
Where do some people get off? I've gotten to the point that I hate my adult stepdaughter (and i rarely have had that feeling about a person) and wish some days that one of her bad decisions would result in her just disappearing. she has told lies about me, damaged my house, stolen money, verbally and physically assaulted me numerous times, and even tried to have me arrested for an assault that her boyfriend committed on her. she manipulates her mom and dad and makes them feel sorry for her and that nothing is her fault, no matter what she's done. she's a horrible mother -- having nearly starved her baby and subjecting him to violence and abuse, witnessing sexual acts and drug/alcohol abuse -- until my husband and I intervened and legally took the child from her. even though she doesn't pay a penny in child support and barely even sees her child, she still thinks she should be the one making the decisions when it comes to the child. I have built up so much resentment toward her that I rarely have anything but bad to say about her, and my husband and I fight about it because he says he's tired of hearing me badmouth her all the time. my husband was my dream of all time -- the only man I've ever wanted to be with -- but most days, I feel like I'm only sticking with it for the little one, so he can have a better life. I fear that won't be possible as long as his mother is in the picture. she is the definition of toxic.
