Adult step-daughter bossy, rude & hurtful...
Long story short ~ 13 family members meet for my son's Marine Granduation in San Diego. Step-daughter Jacque, 33(my son is her 1/2 bro) was bossy & rude to just ME about everyone's plans. Nobody wanted to do what sd had in mind. She had a pissy attitude & was hurtful just torwards me. After the trip she contacted me via email & attacked me like a pitbull. She got me all wrong. Her dad is loyal to me & witnessed her behavior & via telephone tried to talk to her then she got pissy with him so he's hurt & doesnt want to talk to her.
I want to make peace but dont know how. She has me all wrong, she was mean, hurtful, harsh, rude, bossy. When I responded to her email all I said was "I'm sorry you feel that way". I swear she wanted me to fight back.
Our last comunication was started when I emailed her asking why she sent my grandson's VDay cards back. I admit i shouldnt have done that because there is no good answer in that.
SD replied: In order to be a part of their lives we needed to talk.
Me: Let's forgive ea. other, put the past behind us, especially make peace with your Dad & lets live with peace, kindness & compassion.
Sd replied: there is no peace, kindness & compassion in "this" email.
Me: Ok, I agree, we need to talk, when is a good time for you, it's up to you.
Sd replied: ok, I'll get Jason to watch the boys because I dont want any interruptions.
That was it. She never called & that was the last we communitcated.
What do I do? Any suggestions? Anybody, anybody?
