I’m Done Protecting Her

As much as I rant and bitch about my husband’s ex-wife on this blog, I always find myself protecting her and doing what I can to ensure that she doesn’t face any severe consequences in life. Why? I don’t have a very good answer for that. I’m not sure why I’ve done this. In the past it was because I believed the things she told me and I didn’t feel that she deserved to suffer for other people’s mistakes. Now that I have been “shown the light” and had more than enough evidence shoved in my face to see the type of person she really is, I don’t have any good reason to protect her. Which is why I am kicking myself in the ass for doing it again.

Yes, once again I stepped in and saved her sorry ass. I really thought I was doing the right thing and now, once again, my family gets to show me how little she appreciates it and how stupid I was for helping her out.

Social Services was on the way to her house yesterday. Literally on the way. I had to call the caseworker on her cell phone to stop it from happening. My husband was pissed that I stopped it. Then my family gets to show me all of the “wonderful” things this woman has said about me, even after I helped her avoid a nightmare. Honestly, I could care less what she thinks about me. I just hate doing shit for people when they don’t appreciate a damned thing I do.

She was five seconds away from losing parental rights to all of her children yesterday (not just my step-kids). It was serious. So what do I do? Do I let it happen? No. I call her because I’m debating whether or not I’m going to intervene on her behalf once again. After the things she said to me I shouldn’t have. I should have let it all go down. She thinks she’s a good mom and has excuses for everything she’s done. Then she goes on to tell me that she doesn’t have to explain herself to me. Maybe she doesn’t fucking get that if it weren’t for me, she’d be in a shitload of trouble right now. I’m fucking sorry, but if I’m going to go to the trouble of helping you out, you’d better be able to explain some of the bullshit you do. Maybe she doesn’t know who she’s talking to. Well, she’s about to find out.

I’m done protecting her. Done. Finished. Not lifting another fucking finger. She wants to think I’m an evil bitch? She hasn’t seen bitch yet. Even with everything she has done, I have dealt with her more than fairly and have been more than kind for the sake of the kids. No more. I don’t know who this nobody bitch thinks she is, but no one talks to me the way she did. I should have gotten off the phone with her and made a call to declare war on her. Nope, I was a “softie” again and called to protect her and then I got to stew about her bullshit all day. Never again.

I’m not sure if she thinks this is all a game or if she really doesn’t get that her life would be shit right now if I hadn’t gotten in the middle of it to defend her over and over and over again. She’s about to find out. I will never lift another finger to help her. The next time she pisses someone off, she’s on her own. And she WILL piss someone off again. I’m pretty sure of it. When she does, she will realize just how serious things are. I’m not getting involved. She doesn’t want to be involved with my family? Too fucking late. She drew a shitload of attention to herself and now all hell will break loose and there is not a damned thing she can do about it. Like I’ve said, I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. She just made my enemy list. It’s not a pretty place to be.
