What do you do when you can’t see the positive
I’ve written many a time about turning the negative, but I am currently in a situation where I see no positive, because of a Web of lies and half truths I am struggling to even talk to my daughter. One minute the problem is broken promises (that as far as I can tell I never made) the next it’s a half truth about a conversation I wish I’d never had (not with my daughter)
The lesson I suppose, I’ve learnt is that half truths are worse than lies, but I’m upset that my daughter feels or felt that she couldn’t talk to me, I’ve always tried to be honest with her.
I’ve tried talking to her school but as it doesn’t affect them, they either can’t or don’t want to get involved.
I don’t know whether to speak to social services but I definitely cannot afford a solicitor.
If I accept I’ve lost her, which is abhorrent to me, then I feel I have to go for the sources of both the lies (her mother) and the half truths.
Another thing this has made realise is that I rely on others too much to sort things out, I’m a 44yr old adult.
