Things have been going pretty good around the house, but last night we ended up addressing the 'elephant in the room'. There's so much more to the evening, but I won't hash it all out here. I've been processing it all this morning and looking to Brene Brown for a bit of clarity and inspiration.
“It’s not about ‘what can I accomplish?’ but ‘what do I want to accomplish?’ Paradigm shift.”

My son and I recently (three days ago) moved in with my bf and his three teenage daughters. I have an 8 year old son. We've been together for a year and a half. I thought us having a long distant relationship and taking it slow was working so well. But it's only been 3 days and I'm already TERRIFIED of what is to come. I feel like I have hurt my son by bringing him 200 miles from home, away from everything he knows. The girls are each so different. The oldest and middle daughters, 15 and 14, have already been mean and hurtful.
I’m a stepmum to a 17 year old girl and a 15 year old boy. I’ve been with their dad for 12 years and we’ve always had the kids every other weekend and over the holidays. We were doing really well and were really happy (despite the occasional fallout with his ex-wife)and are planning on getting married this year.
