I hear you little child

I am quite ... irritated, anxious and fearfull are the right words, as next week my sister

in law and her family are visithing my in laws'. Maybe they will drop by our house,

maybe not. Maybe they will try to force a reconciliation between me and my mil(mother in law) like 

they did 2 years ago. I feel 'exposed' because this year my parents are not visiting 

me so there is only hub's family. They could force me to see mil. Not sure hubs

would be on my side all the time, he has funny ways to beave around his narcissistic

mother, he is definetely not the same, and there is nothing I can do about it.

I guess it makes me resentfull. I whish I could count on him to feel secure around

this extended family, but I can't. This is frustrating.

I can only count on myself. And I don't trust myself either.

I do trust this group though to back me off in this.

My mil has been verbally abusive to me in the past and this reminds me my father.

Insults and diminishing me all the time. The feeling of being worthless, that nothing good

could ever come out of me and that if people would know they would all avoid me and reject me.


Protecting my inner child is ok.

I hear you dear little one. I love you.

I will never let anyone hurt you anymore little girl ...


Thank you for letting me share

Thanks for sharing this Ileana. I would suggest no one can force you to do anything, except perhaps the IRS.


Peace and Love Y'all...especially PEACE

I agree with Karlo...this is a "lets see what you will do" thing, where you choose to be around this woman who abuses you , or you protect yourself and set some serious boundaries...if hubs won't back you, then you just don't be there if she comes.....and I agree...we are only forced by the IRS..everything else is a choice RE: being around toxic people...keep protecting can only change you


Live and let live
