How many of us are out there?
Hello, i am new to this site but was certainly excited to find it. Just from reading some of the entries, this looks like a good place to learn and vent.
I have recently become a stepmother (I have no children of my own), to an 11yr old girl who has lived with only her father since she was 2. They have an amazing connection and for the most part she is well behaved but I feel guilty for resenting her and wanting more time alone with my husband. We have only been married 9months but I already question what I have done:( I love my husband, he is amazing for many reasons, the most obvious those being that he has raised a little girl on his own but...I can't tell where he ends and she begins and its problematic at times. But its not just their relationship, the issues also involve his mother and sister...who adore this child but to the point of idolizing her. All that is ever talked about when we are all together is the child, how wonderful, perfect, sweet, kind, super she is. Story after story, memory after memory.
Does any of this sound familiar or am I being selfish?
