I've been "told" not to discuss things dealing with my ex and his wife, any further. I was also told not to have any communication with him and he with me. This being told by an unnamed party but one that you can read between the lines.
I have a problem with this. This is my blog and I refuse to allow someone to dictate what I should say and not say on my blog. I have never written any untruths but maybe the truth is a hurtful thing? I've also not purposely mentioned names for that very reason, to provide privacy for those people who wish to remain nameless.
So, here on out, I will not talk about the ex having an affair with the person that he is now married to. I will not write about the fact that she is attempting to dictate her wishes yet, isn't woman enough to speak English to me to express her views. I will not talk about how she claims that I'm causing problems in their marriage by blogging, when the problems existed the moment they hooked up. I will not talk about the fact that she is my oldest daughter's age and yet feels that she has the power to manipulate her wishes in a house that her name is not on. I will not block her from my blog because if she doesn't like what she's reading, she doesn't have to read it.
I will talk about my daughters who I'm so very proud of! I will talk about how it took both my ex and I to raise such wonderful, intelligent, beautiful daughters. I will talk about the memories of them growing up and in that case, if he was a part of that memory, I will not mention or give him credit for that memory, in order to abide by the unnamed person's wishes - even though he is deserving of that credit.
I intend to be there when our first grandchild is born and when our youngest gets married. If she doesn't like that, I will no longer give a moment's thought.
I will from this day on forgive her for her stupidity and distrust while inwardly, not outwardly, expressing that I'm glad that she now knows what it feels like to be on the receiving end of things. I will not waste a moment of time feeling sorry for her but will let her know that if my daughters are ever pushed out of their dad's life because of her manipulation and insecurities, I'm stepping in.
With that said, I now resume this regularly scheduled blog.
