NOT surprised. Disappointed yes.
We had had a really productive talk where I felt like we actually heard each other for the first time in a long time. So, I started entertaining a sliver of hope again. MISTAKE!!!
I know people. I really, really do. I am doing the same thing we all do. I'm trying to hang on to that one sliver of hope that our asshats will change.
Not going to happen. I need to detach. I need NC. I am going to have to tell my DD that we just can't be friends yet. I need time to process this.
It stops when I say it stops. I need to say it stops.
