Leave home at the age of 21 to move into my own apartment. I was brought up in a very very over protective home.

Walk into the room where my father in law had just passed--and tell my husband and mother in law he was gone. It just about, was too painful. Even now. thinking about it

Putting on a smile and "the good face" while attending the wedding of someone who had made my life a living hell, walked up and down everyone I cared for, took out all her anger on everyone, and if it were possible? She'd have shit in the corn flakes. Not to mention the lies she's been passing around about such nonsense.

It was the hardest thing I've ever done. Playing nice to her and holding my tongue.

GONE! GONE!
Breaking up with someone who was already having a bad time, knowing it might do her immense harm. I was being harmed too much myself. I couldn't not.

Your comment, "She'd have shit in the corn flakes" had me LMAO! Even when describing the hardest thing you've had to do, you are still unexpectedly funny & I like that!

Now, that's just depressing! I understand the dilemma, though, & it's a lose/lose situation. All you can do is pick the least hurtful action in the long run, as you did. It just sucks!

Two things have been really difficult for me and for two very different reasons.

The first was breaking up my family by leaving my ex husband. It wasn't a decision I look lightly and it broke my heart to have to be apart from my children for a few days each week. The first couple of months tore me apart! I hadn't even spent a single day away from my youngest when we separated, and then I was having to spend the weekends away from them? It was really rough for a while. It's still hard sometimes, but it's been over three and a half years now, so it's more routine now.

The other one was the morning my husband's mom died. I was pregnant with our daughter and had just gotten up in the morning. My husband went upstairs before me and overheard his father on the phone with 911. I'll never forget the sound of his voice when he called down to me and said, "I need your help, I think my mom is dead!". The whole situation was difficult, it was hard walking into the room and seeing her there, but it was even harder that I had to go back downstairs and tell my four years old and nearly two year old that their 'G' had died. I was trying to hold it together and told them that she was gone. My four year old burst into tears and just held onto me.

That event has set a lot of other things in motion and it's been a huge challenge to get through. It broke my heart having to tell them that, and it was just as hard to watch my husband being so broken.

Ah, man, I didn't really expect so many upsetting stories when I posted this topic! I guess I thought I'd hear, "That time I climbed a mountain, in a blizzard..." I really didn't mean to bring everyone down, if that's what I did, but I do appreciate all these thoughtful answers!

What a shame about your mother in law; I'm sorry to hear that! And, certainly, anyone would be a mess about breaking up their family like that with young children! I'm glad you are past the initial shock of it all & have gotten into another, better, relationship. I'd be a mess having to share my cats, let alone children, good grief!

@ js250, sounds like another task I would dread doing, too!
