Crazy for leaving or crazy for staying?posted 2 years ago in Emotional

Father’s Day weekend was difficult for me. It was hard not to think about my family. We spent time with my husbands parents and it was nice, but the whole time I couldn’t stop thinking about everything that happened pre and post wedding. My moms admission and justification of manipulating me hurt the most. I tried not to fixate on that, but that left the biggest void in my heart. In her eyes the behavior was justified because it was meant to get my attention and coerce me through threats that I should do it her way. I’m not an angry person in general, but those thoughts burned in my mind as I was reminded this weekend that while everyone is celebrating their dad, mine disowned me.

chiefbee : Bee, I just read through all your posts and it’s been a bit of a trigger for me.
I have just finished praying for you. I’m so glad that you got the pastor to intervene and that he realizes the crazy situation you’re in. I’m so sorry you experienced what you did but you handled it better than I could. My father said this during one of my many fights with my mother, “You can only control what you do to others, not what others do to you. Act in a way that brings glory to God because that’s what you will be held accountable for.” Bee, this stuck with me and is helping me with my own actions. I pray that you will find peace, that you are safe, and that you just focus on how much you are loved.
