1. I'm no longer in group texts that include bio mom. In fact I'm no longer in group texts at all. Which suits me just fine. When I realized that there was no desire to form anything other than a superficial relationship I ceased sending any initiated by myself. They all soon followed with not including me. I consider this a Win and confirmation that my desire to have a meaningful connection with them was not reciprocated. Took me over 2 years to realize.
I’m going to try to keep this a bit generic to my own situation so that I don’t feel like I’ve revealed to much and need to delete this later. This is long so if you’re not into novels you probably want to skip.
My situation has been interesting with my adult step kids.
