I’m mentally exhausted
For the past three days it's been nothing but fights with my husband. My stepson has wreaked havoc in our home and he's not even living here. My husband says I treat his son like a red headed stepchild and that he resents me for that. I've somewhat attempted to have a relationship with his son but he hasn't lived with us except for 6 months a couple years ago. He talked crap about me and my husband to his mother when he lived with us and as I previously stated he whined to go home because it was too hard at our home with all the rules. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to form a bond with someone who I rarely see and someone who is disrespectful. I announced to my husband today I'm going to therapy for my sanity and to work on the resentment I have towards his son, I also think the resentment has a lot to do with his mother and how she raised him. I also told my husband it's not my job to take care of this soon to be adult, this is on him and his ex wife to figure out but of course the ex wife is done and is now pushing him off on to us. He's supposed to go to jobcorps and my husband is taking off work to get him in but I'm wiping my hands clean because I have two younger children to worry about. I just want to laugh at this point because even the stepdad of his son cannot stand him and wants him out of the house so what makes my husband think I want him here acting like that. I just feel I'm being treated super unfair in this situation and my husband is guilt tripping me saying he needs my support. I said go to therapy and learn self care, this isn't my issue. I'm beyond exhausted.
