Re: Cutting ties with emotionally abusive relatives

Mine in the end was very simple. We moved interstate, changed my phone number and email address and didn't bother letting them know. The kids miss their cousins like crazy but if they want to fly and see them I have no problem with that but everyone has to travel a little as we have issues with our previous state. The kids are quite happy and very agreeable to it as it allows them to feel safe and have some control which they didn't have.

 

I think I just got to a point where I hadn't thought about them for so long I was no longer irritable with their garbage.

Thanks for sharing @Lily17. Distance and time can be great healers, that's for sure.

 

I can imagine it would've been hard on the girls missing their cousins, but as parents we sometimes need to make some tough decisions to do what's best overall for our kids or family as a whole don't we.
