In "Childless" stepmums
Hey struggling with feelings of resentment towards my step daughter (5) and the things I am missing out on with my partner. I want to travel with him, visit new places etc but realise this isn’t possible as we can only go away a week at a time due to the schedule they have. We are looking to buy a house but I keep getting feelings of jealousy that she will have a room in my first home. I suppose I’m struggling to accept the life I imagined with a partner is very different to the life I will live? Love my partner to bits but unsure I can continue with the feelings of guilt I have. Does it get easier?
