    Burying resentment means that it is still there just under the surface. Please start to work through your grief and loss. Knowing the paternity isn’t going to fix this situation; obviously this woman is distraught over being tied to your living son. Have you thought about the reasons why she may be fearful of him? Do any of those you thought of seem reasonable to introduce to a little girl?

    Wha? Huh? Oh my.

    That’s a long ass letter. It’s an advice column which is why advice was given.

    You’re so disrespectful to your stepdaughter it’s mind boggling. Have fun with that. It’s a good way to build family. You took her mom’s phone number off the board? How’s she supposed to feel free to contact her mom as needed? Your relationship sounds like a rollercoaster and there are major red flags.

    Oh, and my dad literally cut my food when my fiance was present because that was our thing. Sometimes kids have little inside things with their parents where they do things that don’t need to be done just because it’s their kid.

    You probably should’ve called Sam & Dean for help.

    So sorry booknerd, it’s so difficult to face challenging times like yours.

    Yes to life outside of work, I used to think I wanted to be someone to work 100 hr weeks, etc. but I’m glad I went a different path. It made my anxiety go through the roof, not to mention when I look at some of my business idol type people and they talk about how little friends they have, family problems, etc. One goes to Disneyland sometimes just to see happy families because he decided not to have a family of his own because of his schedule. But at the same time, they’re very happy with what they built so what works for one doesn’t for another. You just have to think hard about what you want. I love having a flexible schedule now and use the full extent of that.

    I recently saw a Shark Tank rerun with an “entrepreneur” with some messed up Celebration of Life business and as the sharks probed further into her presentation you could see them recoiling. Robert was one of the first ones out and pretty much called her an awful human being… because she was trolling for business with her dog at a hospice animal volunteer gig she had… it was disgusting.

    I would like to say I would never go to work in pjs but I know if it was acceptable I would every day.

    Do things solo sometimes, even when you’re with someone. Go to restaurants, museums, movies alone. It’s totally different yet so nice. It surprised me when I learned a lot of my friends never did that when we were your age. Only 27 now, but still.

    Don’t worry about specific timelines, go for the money in something interesting and don’t get too bogged down with school debt to do so (says someone $80K in, le sigh, at least I’ll get some loan forgiveness…)

    Love yourself, no one else is going to do that for you.

    Yeah, there were actually quite a few kids in high school who had siblings a couple years older or younger than them and it seemed like a 50/50 split between getting along and hating each other royally.

    I can’t imagine my neices who are 2 years apart, 6 & 4, getting along when they’re older because one’s clearly Sis in law jr and the other’s clearly my brother jr. Just so different yet they always have to spend time together.

    I’m so screwed if I get pregnant, my cravings are already bad enough as it is in life.

    Absolutely no one has talked shit about your family and friends. They could be part of the solution if they also change the patterns of interaction with you because you really need to stop lashing out at people. It’s really going to mess up your life as it continues. It becomes less and less acceptable as people age.
