Lessons Learned
Three Suggestions from Veteran Stepmoms​
FutureSMOMinLove's List
I am 21 years old and have been in the relationship for 2 years. I have a sweet SD who will be 3 soon. No bios...yet

1. I would have just been myself around SD. I tried way too hard to make her like me and put way too much thought into SDs words.
 
2. I would have gone to counseling a LONG time ago to work on the anger I was developing. I actually went once and felt stupid. It was a counselor at my college and after the first session all I could think about is how this probably sounds like such a trivial and childish problem.

3. I would have stopped worrying about SD. I put too much responsibility on myself. I did things for SD alone. Now I do things for me first, BF second and SD last. If I don't want to do it I won't.
