Dear Abby: “The Other Woman” Rebuilds Her Life After Affair Failure | Dear Abby

Dear Abbey: I’m a 38 year old woman and I used to be nice. Then I had a relationship for three years. Knowing that I’m one of America’s biggest fools, and for a long time annoying, I finally saw the light. Only his wife thinks he is a fool bigger than me.

Some “highlights” of our romance: he gave me a sexually transmitted disease during spring break, I found an “Ali” phone number in his contact file, and I I saw a white convertible blonde drop him in front of his house at 9:15, according to him, in the morning it “never happened.” My eyes don’t lie. After I was hit by a car at the pedestrian crossing, he never called me to see what I was doing. Then his teenage son chased me around the town, turned me over, and shouted obscene words. There are more, but I will spare you.

Warn the reader to stay away from the affair. They insult you, your spouse loses trust in you, and the person you are involved with-is that person really trustworthy? Won’t he fool you too? This “great” guy is an elementary school teacher. (Think about what he teaches your kids!)

As I said, I used to be great. I used to be caring and trusting. I can not bear anymore! This guy changed not only my whole life, but the life of my family. Do you forgive yourself?

PS I spent thousands of dollars on counseling. It’s a lot of money, but I’m worth it. -Last saw the light

Finally: Love may be blind, but I’m glad you finally saw the light. We are also pleased to find that we need professional help to regain our self-esteem. Your bitterness pops out of your letter page. If you work on it with a counselor, it will be a common source of money.

Dear Abbey: After 34 years of marriage, I became a widow 10 years ago. My late husband’s sister, Barbara, is a widow who still has no children or family and considers me to be my sister and friend. Abby, I have never approached her. We were very different and neither my husband nor I had any actual contact with her, except for occasional holiday gatherings.

Barbara is a domineering and self-loathing hypochondriasis with no friends left to alienate her. We live fairly close to each other and feel she expects me to be her companion and caregiver entering her older years since she lost her husband three years ago. I am. I cut my wrist first!

I married my husband “until I died”, not my husband’s family. I don’t want to hurt Barbara’s feelings. I just want to enjoy my seniors. How can I gently withdraw from Barbara’s game plan? -Did not sign up for this

Did not sign up: Remove yourself from Barbara’s game plan with less and less “gentle” availability. She may be strong-willed and domineering, but you don’t have to stick to her wishes and you don’t have to be a dump for her problems.

I’m busy when I ask her to get together. If she is depressed, suggest sadness counseling that has helped many. If she proposes to help her enter a period of decline, explain that it is not possible because you are planning a trip. You don’t have to be cruel and hard about standing up for yourself. Just stick to your sense of humor and keep your distance.
