“How does one deal with this? I am still trying to navigate through all of the emotions of my child being used by my ex 😭. I am having a real rough time right now and don’t know how to hold on. The courts gave my ex the right to state where the kids reside and we all know that isn’t me right now. If my kids weren’t distant already, now it will be worse. 😭😭😭 I don’t know how to keep trying to have a relationship with them that is controlled by their dad.”
Mama Bear Blended Family Support:
“It’s hard, really hard. You have to pull your head out of (naturally occurring) abused victim mode, shake off your depression, and with lots of help from therapist, PhD, medicine, and support groups, you’ll get through this. It all got too overwhelming for me and I finally reached out for help. That is when true healing begins. As soon as your eyes are open to the abuse you have to come to a place of acceptance, and then create your battle plan. Internal battle plan. I “get away” mentally a lot, that’s what I need. I paint, craft, make necklaces and all sorts of stuff. Spend time with the kids (any helps, anyone’s kids.) Remember the good times and constantly remind yourself that time will move forward and truths will reveal themselves, whether you choose to have those conversations with your child or not. Always listen, or children will tell us so much of we listen. Here for you and am thinking of you!”
