my family

Post by facingmytruth » Wed Dec 24, 2014 7:45 pm

Looking forward to spending the whole of Christmas with MY own little family, I decided a few weeks back that in order for me to work through things I needed to stop contact with my birth family. It has been the best desicion.not easy at times but nothing is ever easy. I wish you all a good Christmas and hope 2015 is all you want it to be.

facingmytruth,

Thank you so so much for sharing. This has just given me renewed strength and determination to make similar choices. My T and I talked about focusing on "MY family's" Christmas, which for me means my boyfriend and 2 dogs on Christmas morning and then boxing day brunch with a dear friend the next day. I AM unfortunately seeing my mom and entire foo also, but it won't be quite as hard now that I have it framed that way.

So much love,

Greendiva

Thank you all.
this is the first Christmas in years were I can actually say I felt relaxed knowing they weren't going to knock my door ,not having to play happy families or pretending in front of my h or children.it has been really nice being able to be me,have fun with my daughters and like I've always wanted making it the Christmas I wanted it to be for my children.yes they tried texting but that's were the off switch comes in handy lol.I hope today isnt to stressful for you greendiva ,much love and understanding from me.thank you all for being here and making me realise that it is my life and my choice who is and isnt in it.

I stayed here with my dog. She and I are the immediate fam now. My brother and Dad dropped by. It was great to see them.

Is my bday today he turned up with a card I told them both I didn't want them in my house , the card read daughter I said they didn't deserve to be parents and handed it back to them.I feel like a horrible person but I know I have to keep at it because I feel much better when I don't see them.its hard tho because somehow I still love my mother but she isn't worthy of that.just makes me feel such a bad person.
