so my s/o and i broke up... which obviously means i have no step-parent situations (not that i ever was legally a step-parent). the break up had nothing to do with kids or ex's etc. just stresses that each of have going on in our personal lives.
i will still be around here, i do still have kids and an ex.... but we are thinking about trying to work things out again... not sure just yet.
so for those who told me it wouldnt last, you win, lol! but not for any of the reasons you might think.
his dad was given 6 months to live and he is beside himself and taking out his anger and frustration over that on me (not physically) - my son is getting ready to deploy and i have become withdrawn, which he took personally, despite me explaining what is going on. it was the stress test and we failed miserably. it seems like each of us is so caught up in our own situation and unable to be there for the other.
it is what it is.
