I was just recently told by my ex-husband, who I have reconnected with, that he feels he has to walk on egg shells with me. My mother has also told me this, as has my sister. I have no friends but I’m sure they would feel the same way to.
Is this because I could explode at things said to me? Maybe. Or is it because people are just plain jerks with what they say or do that they all set me off?
How has it come that everyone decides to fall back on the “I walk around on egg shells with you” and “you have the problem, not me” instead of not admitting that they are just plain asshats. I’m the nice one here. I only bite when barked at. I know of people who wake up in the morning ready for a fight, not caring who they tick off or if others around them live or die. I believe I share blood with some. I also share blood with those who don’t seem to have one ounce of common sense or human nature decency in their body. I swear I don’t belong in this family.
I belong free. I want to BE free. I want to enjoy my son for Christ’s sake! Without the “you are the worst mother in the world because you let your son WALK home from school and be home for 1 hour because YOU have to work!”
And yes….that is what I’m told…
Where are those metaphorical egg shells now, huh ma?
Oh and yes….still do not get along with that women…finally realized…I never will…ever. She is everything I do not want to be in a mother. She is everything that I try not to be, in a mother. That says enough.
So, please all…continue to walk on those eggshells. Ask me if I give two fucks about it!
