Just read quickly through some of these comments and am amazed at the lack of compassion and understanding from some of you. For God's sake, this
woman has put up with the daughter for all these years and tried her damndest to help smooth things out and to be a family. She did nothing wrong!
It may seem strange, but is likely sourced in some personal projection. Honestly, I could see several stepmothers I know making this exact post.
Its pretty uncanny, actually..
Of course, none of it would be true in the case of the ones I know personally. They all have a habit of portraying themselves as faultless martyrs.
That certainly isn't saying the OP is carrying out such actions, just that its hard not to "go there" if you have seen it before, or suffered through
Even I had to take a step back and not project my own life experiences onto the situation. When a stranger steps in and grabs the reigns, it can
create a deep, long standing resentment. Especially when that person doesn't want the whole family, only a single person.
