I found out a couple of months ago that my 21 year old step-son doesnt like me and never has despite pretending like he does for 10 years. I'm really hurt by this revalation and i dont know how to deal with it. I know it shouldnt matter if he does or doesnt i'm a parent and its not my job to be liked but to be a good parent first and foremost, but it cuts deep. Am I being petty about this? How do I get over it? How do I prevent this from eating away at me?
