This was an utterly brilliant answer on every level. Thanks for the good thinking.
This is wise and sensitive advice. Sometimes the only way to build relationships is to back off and allow the other person all of the time they need for healing to take place.
I thought your advice was good. I was really surprised by the person who asked the question. She was selfish when she had the affair and broke up two families, and it sounds like she's still selfish today. It sounds like she feels entitled to her step-children's love and respect, and that she feels like they should include her in their lives. Love and respect are earned and not demanded. If she doesn't inspire those things in her step-children it sounds like she needs to work on herself and being the kind of person that they can respect.
