So, why does he seem like the enemy now? - July 6th 2009, 11:28 PM

I posted in here about the divorce that's happening for my family a little while ago. It really hasn't bugged me, don't ask me why, it just really doesn't phase me all that much. It sucks I guess. But I really don't mind.

So my dad is going to stay with one of his friends, who is a girl, and my mom says that they're dating.

I've met this women. Absolutely despise her. Dumbest broad I've EVER met. And that's being nice. Wouldn't dad tell me if he were dating her? I thought he was just gonna stay with her after the divorce (or before? I don't know.).

All my mom does now is cry, get mad, and drink. There's always beer in the house.

I've offered to listen to anything she has to say, I just wish there was something I could do for her, she refuses to talk about my "father" with me.

No offense, but after all the shit they put me through in my childhood, they don't think I can handle listening to them vent?

You didn't try to protect me then, why start now? It's a little late.

So now I feel kinda betrayed by my dad. I still love him, I know he's not betraying me.

But he just called and I could hear my mom crying in the background.

Maybe I'm just really upset cause it's hurting her so much.

I'm so confused.

Thoughts, suggestions?

They'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

~Sebastian.

True, your parents probably could have done more to protect you up until this point; however, there is a difference between exposing you to their arguments, and using you as a counselor. You are their daughter, and therefore should not have to support your mother emotionally to such a high degree. That is what marriage counselors and best friends are for. So try not to take it too personally if your parents don't want to confide in you. With my stepmom, I was able to become her "friend", and she'll talk to me about all sorts of things regarding their difficult marriage... but as a result, she is no longer a mother figure to me. Frankly, I'd rather have a mother figure than another friend, but what's done is done.

I see your point Robin, but I have neither a mother figure or a friend in her.
