Sad and Afraid
Not sure where to begin. Moved in with boyfriend after a year. First month he had children 50/50. Since June his teenage daughter 13 has been with us full time. So difficult. Need help coping. Feel alienated and unsupported. Afraid boyfriend will break up with me if his daughter and I cent get along. Thing is she doesnt speak with her mother. She rejects me, gives me silent treatment and at times outwardly ignores me. I try to be consistent with attempting to engage. Not sure what else to do. Feels hurtful and she can completely dismiss me and be friendly and happy go lucky with her dad. She will leave the room when I enter. Closes bedroom door in my face when I walk by the room. Any help suggestions would be helpful. I have so many mixed feelings. I am in love with her father but it creates a very tense awkward hostile and unhealthy environment. We can be in the house together for hours and not speak to eachother. I try to give her space and not push but it lasts for weeks on end.
