Sounds like you are doing great. I'm happy to hear about all the constructive things you are doing.
Thanks for your kind words. I know it's not personal when my stepdaughters tell people I'm not their real Mom. They are just making conversation and providing information about their lives. Joint custody is just such a big part of their life.
Actually, it is me who is too sensitive. Telling people I'm not a real Mom really touches a nerve and can even bring tears to my eyes because I just wanted so badly to be a real Mom.
The books are helping me avoid a spiral downwards when I feel sad. I can now have some sad thoughts without getting too wound up but just letting it pass. Yes, Burns is the author of Feeling Good.
