Gee I miss Berry Blonde and Ebony Knight! I hope they are travelling well and are enjoying life to the fullest.
I had my second and last counselling appointment with my ex today. It was pretty intense.
Four weeks ago, my ex's ex refused to meet with me - and after nearly a year of playing nice with her - I pulled the pin on ever meeting her in the future. I had let this manipulative puppet master of my ex-boyfriends family influence my life for far too long and it was time to take the reins back of my own life. I decided to not to try to reconcile with my ex... and leave them to their distorted enmeshment without it impacting on my life.
At the counsellor's request I have agreed to
open the door on that option again. Yuck! I don't hate easily... but I have come to hate this woman. I see right through her. The five men in my ex's family (ex's father, mother deceased, gay brother, gay brother's partner, my ex and my ex's son) are completely blind to this woman's manipulation. Why do some men tend not to see blatant manipulation in some women????
My ex has agreed with the counsellor's request to tell his dad that his previous ex is to stop attending to the family weekly dinners and that I am to go "in her place"... hardly "her place"!!!... She was usurping MY position for way too long!!! grrr. Christmas, Birthdays, Family Events grrrrr.
My ex also agreed to set up a meeting between me and his ex. I am filing down my nails. I know I have the self control and strength to play nice while standing my ground. I wish she would fall off the face of the earth but I accept the reality that isn't going to happen and I will have to manage it. Walking away would be soooo much easier.
Evil LW surfaces big time on this issue... I will just have to keep her under wraps.
My ex's weakness and mismanagement of this issue impacts on me heavily
No responses needed, just venting.
