Re: Accepting the other woman
Q: Do I even have to accept her?
A: You don't HAVE to do anything in life. This is a free country still. I'd like to reframe your original question to
Q: "Is it in my best interest to accept her?"
Q: How do you get past this?
A: Again, like I said. . .by focusing on what she brings to the table for your kids. I know you probably don't know much about her, but as kids spend time with her, they'll maybe volunteer something. Like, "XXXX really likes to cook; she let me help." If you don't really cook, well there ya go. . .you say (even if rehearsed). . ."You know. . .I am glad you had someone to show you cooking. I'm more of a baker. What does she like to cook?" And go from there.
Slowly, you'll begin to accept her.
And maybe I seem a bit confused. . .but maybe, I got you pegged! Ha! Don't know what to do about those tossed salad and scrambled eggs. . .they're posting again. Scannerguard has left the building.
