So in our history there has been a lot of negative, and a lot of positive in the relationship between BM and myself. At some point I made a choice to focus my energy on the positive stuff, and to learn from the negative then let it go. She has done the same thing. Even though in different circumstances we'd probably not choose to be in each other's life, we are making it work.
I have vented and worried about BM on here and now I want to share a positive about BM.
Recently my SO's sister has been creating some issues between SD and me. BM picked up the phone and apologized to me for SD's rude behavior and to tell me she would not tolerate that behavior because I do so much for SD. I literally cried with gratitude after I for off the phone. Then the next part shocked me. She called SO's sister and told her she needed to stay out of our situation, that I am very much SD's family and if she can't respect that then she'd be extremely limited in access to SD. I just need to add, BM followed through with it too.
What are your BM/SM success stories? Do you give them as much attention and weight as you do the negative ones? This particular one for me is big but there this started with a bunch of smaller ones between us.
