I don't think I can find an answer that will leave every one not feeling some kind of hurt. It seems that the thing to do would be to take the burden on my own shoulders so that my children don't get dragged into some kind of battle. (They already are involved in a subtle way though.)
I hope that you can find your way through your current dilemma!
With love . . .

no one can take every path that is offered, no one can go back and redo their past, but we each keep walking down whatever is in front of us making better and better choices as we go along, learning and growing. You can choose to deal with your ex in a different way, you don't have to continue your patterns from the past, yes you might have enabled before, but there is no reason that you should continue to do so if it doesn't make you happy, if it doesn't feel right.
Very well put Jaaimke. It leaves me wondering though if you are okay right now??? Thanks for the post and good luck!
