Counseling for Step Moms and Step Couples in Lancaster, PA
“This is it!” You thought. “We’ve worked so hard, and we finally found each other.” It all seemed so good. Unlike previous relationships, this one seemed different. You both had histories that you each had dealt with. You no longer looked to a partner to complete you or make you whole. In fact, when it’s just the two of you, it’s better than you possibly imagined. But something happens when children from previous relationships are with you. Even though it all seems ok, something inside doesn’t feel quite right. You find yourself unsettled, unsure, and insecure. In fact, the whole family feels a little bit like walking on eggshells.
What am I doing wrong? You worry.
