Getting dissected and twisted...
not me, physically, but every one of my words.
Seems as though STBXH has become quite the intrepreter, nay, even mind reader when it comes to me and what I communicate. DD is also displaying this "talent", more so since she is now residing with him. A simple Happy New Year, hope you get all you deserve wish has been scrutinized and a dark, sinister meaning attributed to the word "deserve". I will admit that I do have a sarcastic streak, always have, but am trying oh so hard to rein it in.
I'm getting ever so tired of explaining, even defending my word choices. Is there a dictionary available for the betrayed spouse to refer to when communicating with the wayward cheater?
I practice the 180, keeping any contact with him to the subjects of financial obligations and children. Also try to only respond not initiate.
Suggestions or thoughts here?
I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
