Too long, didn’t read:
Step mom blames everyone for her problems and won’t take accountability for herself. So I am happy.
Dad on phone: He goes to CNS during the day. He does to those groups, which are during the day.
Step-Mom through speaker on Dad’s phone: How do you expect our marriage to get any better?
I never got along her, mainly because she thinks she can control everybody’s lives. I’m writing about it in my journal today thinking she just said that because she just sees me as a threat to her marriage with my father. Which is true but that’s not why she said that. Anyways, I’m getting to the point where I try to figure out the sequence of events that lead up to the quote above so I ask my Dad what was leading up to this. He says she wanted my Dad to go to groups with me because her Sister, L, goes to groups with L’s daughter. And my Dad responds with how L doesn’t do anything all day so she can do that stuff and my Dad works during the time CNS is open. Which brings us to where the Step-Thing says, “how do you expect our marriage to get better?” Now once thinking through this, it doesn’t really bother me at all, because it gives me power over her. It seems she has it in her mind that her sister and her daughter have the same situation as me and my Dad. Which is definitely not the case. L and her daughter have a toxic relationship because L drank and still drinks all day since as long as I’ve known her. So she has abusive qualities towards others… My Dad quit drinking shortly after I was born. My Dad and I have always gotten along. So when Step-Thing says things like that, it just shows me she is weak, blaming everybody but herself for her problems. We have power that she gives to us because she is too weak to handle it herself. And this has been my struggle with her all along. We cause her hardship and she blames gets upset that we are not satisfying her because she is too weak to take power for herself. I see she is unsatisfied and that is pretty messed up, yet I am completely satisfied with her torturing herself.
