I don’t think you’re being ungrateful, but it is very difficult for people to accept change. My mom never copes with change well, and she never will. She had issues when all of her kids got married, and still doesn’t treat us like full adults. To her, we are still her kids who she can yell at and scold us to no end. She’ll also constantly tell us how much we’ve changed as if it’s a bad thing. In reality, it’s just a natural progression.

I would give your stepmom some space. You’ve already apologized and it’s all you can really do. You can try to include her in more things if you’re up to it, but she’s going to offer her opinion whether you want it or not…that’s what moms do, even if she’s your stepmom. Right now, her feelings are hurt b/c she thinks you’re trying to cut her out of your life on purpose. The only way to really change that is to give her some space and try to include her as much as you can stand.

Sorry you’re going through this. change is never easy, especially when you’re a parent.
