Not letting bm occupy any room in my head, even though she was/is very HC and aggressive. It's hard to ignore someone when they are constantly coming for you. It's necessary though, for my happiness and for my marriage.
Putting myself in DH's position i.e. understanding his perspective.
I think my biggest challenge I will have to face in the future is my now 14 (almost 15) year old DD. She is slowly coming around but still gives BF a "hard time" by going to her room & refusing to get to know him. She even admitted that she is afraid he will leave us like her dad did.
BTW she sees her dad maybe once a month, sometimes 2 depending on his work schedule.
the biggest challenge for me was not trying to take over. Not my kid, have to respect the parents roles and let them raise their kid their way. It was tough but got easier in time.
I think my biggest challenge was being able overcome the lies about me from BM to the SKs, without badmouthing or showing BM in a bit light to SKs. That is the worst thing a SM can do. It, of course, took time, but was well worth the wait.
I would have to say my biggest challenge was going from a mother of 1 to a mother of 4 pretty much overnight. It is unbelievably hard to schedule 6 people.
After that, the biggest challenge is letting BM's shenanigans roll off my back. She does some pretty crazy things that just make no sense whatsoever.
My biggest challenge has been letting go of what I cannot control (BM and her drama) and not letting it take over my head.
