The deliriously selfish bliss of being an alienating parent:

You will never know the pain of worrying about the kids when they are in the care of someone who does not truly care about them.

You will never wonder why the other parent does not love the kids. You already know the other parent loves the children very much; otherwise, the kids would not be viable weapons for you to use.

You will never understand how much it hurts the kids to be torn apart, because your focus is only how tearing them apart serves you.

You will never feel sick to the stomach when the kids ask you why the other parent lies to them.

You will never worry how all the pain the children are being forced to swallow will hurt them now or in the future…because you are the one force-feeding it to them.

Then again…

You will never know how it feels to be loved by the children without having to manipulate them, buy them, or bribe them.

You will never feel the pride of knowing in your heart you are trying, always, to do what is genuinely best for the kids.

You will never be able to honestly look into the kids’ eyes and know that you did right by them.

You will never be able to look in the mirror and see a reflection worthy of respect.

You will never be, in any sense of the word, a parent worthy of that title.

I am endlessly trying to make sense of a world that has completely and unapologetically lost its mind.

    It's truly tragic that it happens.

    But even more tragic that it's so damn common!

    Hang in there.

    I think you've summed it all up quite nicely…

    Tragic… it really is. It's been 2 years since my hubby has seen his girls…

    So sorry that you have to deal with this degree of childishness and selfishness. Shame when the kids are more mature than the so-called “adult” involved isn't it?

  4. Great post, sad it happens but I know my family deals with this. I can only hope PEG wakes up someday and realizes what she is doing.

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
