Dealing With Toxic Family Members Around Your Kids – Postmodern Woman – Medium

I watched the father of my two youngest fall victim to this.

He became every bit the monster that his father had been for so long. It’s something that he still struggles with to this day. However, we have been able to overcome the worst and strive for better, together. Not everybody seems to come to the realization that they can choose a different path in life. Well, forget that; the buck stops here. I’ve been very firm that at this time: no one really has unsupervised visits. You can’t take my kids anywhere, nope.

The family does hold some resentment towards me for my choices. Whether it’s the cold shoulder or just full blown cursing me to my face. I’ve moved my family across the country in search of a better life. And you know what? In the short amount of time that we’ve been here, I’ve witnessed the most amazing changes in all of us. We’re no longer burdened or held back with feelings of never ending despair and hopelessness like we were before. Even the baby seems to realize that things are better when you try to surround yourself with light.

People, you CAN make different choices. Be you and do you. Make up your own handpicked family if you need to. Whatever it takes to protect those who are innocent and precious. They are just getting started in this world, and they deserve everything we have to offer and more.

This…is how we change the world.
