BM and DH were talking about something, I'm pretty sure it was more a disagreement about something. Anyway, she mentioned our "Bastard" child, (yes, we weren't married so she was technically correct) but was meant as an insult. We've been together longer than any of her relationships, and longer than her two relationships with her two fathers of her children combined, not that that actually matters. How hard would it be for you to let that comment go? It really hurt my feelings, and I'm having a hard time forgetting about it. How would you feel, and how would you let it go? (When you know that she is projecting those thoughts about your child onto your step child).
