I divorced my ex because his TBI made him a monster, he frightened my two young children and now both are dealing with PTSD. My ex-in-laws not only denied he was that bad but called me names and spread rumors about me for divorcing. Now 10 years have passed and they are trying to pull me "back into the family" by inviting me places and asking for my help. (Not once did they acknowledge, to my face, that I was right to divorce to protect my children.) Every time they ask me, my daughter says it hurts her deeply, that her pain and what she went through is being brushed aside to try to make things look "good" for them. She wants me to drop them altogether. I don't know how to tell them I can no longer do things with them without giving them the real reason, which they would cringe over and say I don't know how to forgive.
