I am kinda new here, been reading some posts, so I thought I might put this out there. Well I am this kind of person who hates conflict, I seem to always get in the middle of things that I wish I did not have to. For example I am remarried and sometimes my kids don't get along with their step mom, if I take sides I end up the loser, if I side with my wife the kids are upset with me, if I side up with kids my wife is upset with me. I love them both so very much I wish they would get along. also my best friend thinks I don't see or talk to him because I am remarried, and if I tell my family I like to be friends again they think I am wrong, they think my friend is using me. So no matter what I do it will make someone upset, I know this seems petty, but it makes me so upset,even sick, anyone else like that? . there are more things, these are just examples, I feel like I have to be the peacemaker all the time, I hate seeing people fighting, it hurts me. I have told people that what they are doing is upsetting me and they just don't understand, any advice?
