It makes us feel uncomfortable when you go on and on about how ridiculous Dad’s new girlfriend is or the subtle comments you make about how Mom looks like she’s gained some weight.Because we love you we might let it slide or even play along, but over time we will see you as bitter and we’ll resent it.
If we didn’t see this coming, we’ll ask ourselves if there was ever really love or was it all a lie?
We want you to know that we’re struggling and trying to make sense of all this.
As we sort through it all, there may be times when we press you for more information.
We know it may be hard not to see us every year for Christmas.
When you tell us it’s okay and you hope we have a great time with the other parent, it shows us how much you love us.
