2. Regarding my frustrations with my stepkids and their differences from anything I can understand. I need to process my emotions in a healthy way but I do need to process them. Either go out to my car and yell and scream out the pain or Pause and think in the moment – why am I really upset. Or a combination of the two. And to try to address that need. Am I really upset that they ate my left over gluten free lasagne or is it that they constantly cross my boundaries. How can I protect myself and my things?
3. Just look at today. If I look at the next 5 years until SS13 graduates I will panic – I can not do this for that long. But I can do this just for today. Today and it’s requirements are definately manageable. I can approach today with a good heart and a smile on my face no matter how I truly feel as I drive home to the house full of teen stepkids.
God Bless you…..do you think little kid stepkids are worse than teens?? The constant need from the little ones have been driving me CRAZY.
