I am working a model for a feeling I want to have when it comes to my relationship with my stepdaughter. We have been a blended family fro 17 years. Heidi is 38 years old, married with children.
My first model:
C: In group conversation, Heidi turns her back to me and faces her Dad.
T: Heidi does not like me.
A: I sooth with food, I search for facts to prove the thought, I withdraw from family gatherings, I say mean things RTO my husband about his kids
R: weight, not the person I want to be
The model for the feeling I want to have.
C: I attend a family group gathering.
T: Good for me for participating. I showed up.
