Dear Bitter Ex-Wife,
I am writing this letter to let you know that the relentless turmoil you have caused in not only our lives but my son's life and your own daughter's life too. You see I met my husband way after you had moved on and left him for another man. You were living the dream and never around while my now husband had the daughter you share. You were busy planning your wedding and didn't care what your ex was doing until the day you met me. Then it changed, you thought you were still going to call the shots and control him and everything but boy were you wrong. You see, I don't play those games. I am also divorced with a child from my previous marriage but I, unlike you, put my child's needs before my own. When you decided to get a divorce that meant you were no longer a priority in your exes life but you two share a child so being adults and putting your daughter first was supposed to be your number one priority. Boy, have you failed miserably at this. Your daughter has had a step-mom that loved her from day one and treated her as her own and you should be ashamed of yourself for the things you have done to that poor child's mind. It's not fair to her to have to go through the guilt of loving another woman in her life but you guilt her into thinking this is wrong. It's been eight years and you still spew your evilness to whoever will listen. You tell my step-daughter's friends parents that my husband and I are horrible people and we abuse your daughter and this is such a lie. You as a 40-year-old woman should be ashamed of yourself. This isn't about you and your only concern should be the happiness of your daughter but instead you have been trying to ruin our lives for years and frankly, I have had enough of it.
I hope you one day you wake up and realize the damage you are doing to your daughter. She will never forget how you have made her feel and the things she has to worry about hiding from you because she fears what you will do. You are a sick person. My step-daughter shouldn't have to worry about loving me. One day you will reap what you have sewn and it's not going to be pretty. No matter what you say about me, I could care less because I am the woman you will never come close to being. Maybe that's why you hate me so much. I guess I will never know but I do hope you stop the hate for your daughter's sake.
The New Wife
