Do you hide your emotions ?
After reading forums I realized finally I am not alone feeling like I dread when SD comes over. Recently within the last 6months I've grown to dislike her very much, I think it mostly stemmed from me always taking her places, playing with her, buying her things all for it to be thrown out the door when daddy comes home. It's like I didn't do sh!t for her. I finally blew up after 6months of keeping it in and me and my SO got into an argument over her. He works 12 hour days and comes home to spend what little time he has all with her. I hide in the room or I want to be as far away from them as possible. Everything she does irritates me. My question for you guys is how do you cope with it ? Do you show your emotions around your SO and step kids or do you act like everything is fine and engage with your step children. I'm having a hard time even wanting to play with her and get her dressed in the morning. I don't want to hate her but she's up her dads butt all the time and he just spends all his time with her when she's here.
