Someone here once told me to look this up sometime. It's been 5 years now since the DIL cut me out.
It's been a long road for me, I did well with he help of some of the beautiful people here. Thank you.
I do believe she is a narcissist now and finally found this the other day. There isn't much help for us out there. This site was a godsend for me.
So. Here is something I SO wish I had learned 10 years ago.
Darn it. I hate that I can't edit here. Typos and bad grammar.
Please disregard. It's why I stopped posting.
Thanks for checking in. Sorry, you find it difficult to post here. I have run across that kind of issue, too. As far as I know, there's nothing we can do. The person with the issue has to seek professional help and I'm not sure many do. Our job is probably to maintain our own balance as much as possible. Not an easy task. Wishing you well...
That is a very good video. I have been trying to apply that advice for a while. In order to maintain regular limited contact with my son, I've learned to compartmentalize that part of my life and otherwise put focus on my own life and goals. It's tough to do, but I'm doing it.
