I DID it!
« on: October 25, 2017, 03:07:20 PM »
I had an enjoyable lunch with my SIL.  PD Mom is living with her.   We didn't talk about anything but happy stuff.  No blaming, no justifying, nothing but good stuff.   It was so refreshing.  I went into thinking that it would be scary and that I'd need to keep my shields up.....
You guys rock!

So happy for you! Here is to having an adult relationship of your own with SIL :cheers:

That's great!! Showing it IS possible for you to have healthy, independent relationships with other people that aren't tainted by your PD mother and her issues. I'm happy for you!  :cheer:
