But I think if we dwell on the bad, it can be bad for us. I would never say that someone couldn't complain about their situation, but I don't want anyone to feel like that can't post feel good posts because their situation is like that, kwim?
Why can't we have both here on this board?
Not saying we can't - that would be nice. People do post feel good posts here as well both Chantelle & I have in the last couple of months because we've actually got to spend time with our stepkids and it went well. But the majority is venting and/or figure out how to deal with a situation regarding our blended families - not usually positive situation because they don't need figuring out.
It's great to know we're not alone. Just because it's negative doesn't mean it's not good - I mean it's therapy
Plus it great to know that you aren't the only one who feels a certain way or goes through things. Our friends who aren't part of blended families just can't understand.
I love this board because when I posted about my situation with my dh's dd on another parenting board, I was treated like evil incarnate. How dare I not like an innocent child? It's not her fault yadayada. Even though she almost wrecked my marriage I was supposed to love her and allow her to abuse me & my children. I came here and got a ton of understanding and support because the ladies here got it.
Unfortunately usually the struggles outnumber the wins
And when I've tried to post off-topic threads, I've gotten no responses. Perhaps I'm just not good at it
I hope you can get it going more because this is a great group!
