I just want my old life back. - December 22nd 2010, 02:30 AM

My dad used to be fun, cool, and easy to talk to. Now he's so wrapped up in his new girlfriend and her kids that I don't even feel like a priority anymore. He's just a different person, and while i knew things would change after the divorce, I didn't expect the changes to make his personality near unrecognizable. As for my sister, she makes me feel like I'm going insane. Like I'm the one doing wrong. Like I'm the one who messed everything up.
And I can't even walk around my very small town because I fear that I'm going to run into my dad's mistress' son. And i did tonight. I was so nervous and I thought I could walk past them and they could go about their conversation, but as soon as my back was turned, I heard vomit noises, and i was called nasty and horrible things. Needless to say, I went home and cried. Normally I have a very thick skin, but my family and the son are the only people who have a blade deep enought to cut.

Hey, there Sarah.

I'm really sorry to hear how difficult that is for you. Divorce does change families, which is unfortunate, but manageable. It seems like you have a lot to deal with. No person should treat you with such disrespect, and I wish that were different for you. Know that it's not your fault. You did nothing wrong in the situation.

Perhaps you could have a conversation with your father about the feelings you have regarding his current relationship. While you can't control him, he is your parent and knowing your feelings is important for him.

Crying isn't a bad thing if it's how you are getting out your feelings, so please don't be ashamed of that. Know you have people who care about you - including us here at TH. You can pm me if you need to talk ever. I hope things start to get better.

i am not my scars and my history
i am, i am, i am who i am...i am who i am.
there are true things inside of me;
i have been afraid to see.
