Lessons Learned
Three Suggestions from Veteran Stepmoms​
E's List
One SD:

I would not let bm get into my head as much as she has over the years. it has caused a lot of stress and heartache for me that I have had no control over.

I may not have even started dating my husband now and I know that sounds horrible but I have been under such stress for the past 10 years that given the choice I may have chosen differently

I would have been more vocal about my feelings and I would have stood my ground a lot more when it came to compromising my desires for "the good of the family"
