Hey, @daysaway11 we're really happy that it was a relief to know you're not alone. We find that many step-families share similar frustrations. It's such a difficult position to be in and we want you to know there's support available.
I thought it might be helpful to share a link to our one-to-one parenting support service, you can read all about it here. We offer free sessions to get support, advice, etc on all kinds of parenting challenges.
Relationships Australia also do lots of work with step-families. If you think it would be helpful to have someone to openly share your frustrations with they would be really good to talk to.
We had a psychologist give some advice here about step-parent conflict and other people in your position have found that helpful too.
We wanted to share our community guidelines here as well and let you know that we edited parts of your post. We really value honest conversations about real-life issues that affect families and the valid emotions people feel in step-families. Our guidelines help us have those conversations in a way that promotes the well-being of young people and their parents.

Thanks for sharing with us, being part of a blended family can have it's ups and downs! Here are some articles you might like to read to get some tips on how best to handle your situation. We are an Australian-based service, so are limited in the support we can provide, but recommend getting in touch with your local family or parent service to get some more advice on how to connect more as a family.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
