Being a stepmom has been the hardest adjustment I’ve ever had to make. Period. I am an only child with no children of my own… by choice. My struggles to deal with three young children after years of peace and tranquility have come with counselling, medication and copious amounts of nervous breakdowns. I wasn’t sure my marriage would last a year.
But my husband believed in me, encouraged me, supported me. His love was unwavering. And he is an absolute saint!
Thankfully, I have been able to maneouver my way through the noise and chaos and have grown tremendously in my ability to deal with certain situations. That’s not to say I don’t have a very long way to go still….
I debated whether to publish my trials and tribulations. I still do at times. But there are a few I have posted that may provide a source of encouragement for others in my shoes. There is no way I would have been able to get through the initial stages of ‘stepmom’hood’ without hearing honest accounts from other step moms who weren’t afraid to share their truth. To them I am forever grateful!
And for those just stepping over that threshold, please know there really IS light at the end of the tunnel! Yes, seriously!
