Being the other woman or other man in a relationship is a complicated and emotionally challenging position to be in. You navigate a path fraught with moral dilemmas, conflicting emotions, and the fear of being discovered.
You find yourself on a rollercoaster of emotions, with the push pull from your married or committed other. While some may perceive it as a conscious choice, more often, it is an unintended entanglement of conflicting emotions.
The experience may be filled with passion and intimacy, yet overshadowed by guilt and longing to be the chosen one. I understand that unlike other relationship issues, as the OW/OM, you can be isolated and unable to talk through your issues or vent to friends and family as you would in a conventional relationship.
Being the Other, can be a very lonely place. and I am experienced in supporting clients who find themselves in this position. Whether it's deciding what path to follow or dealing with the emotions from a Dday, I'm here to help.
With the increasing amount of relationship breakdowns and divorces children are often left going between two homes and the challenges of being a stepparent should not be underestimated.
There are so many questions like Where do I fit in? What’s my role in this family? Am I overstepping? What boundaries should I have? Am I able to discipline the kids? How much is too much communication with the Ex/Co-Parent?
I do a lot work in Stepparent/Step mum support and understand the questions and feeling that come with the territory. There can be feelings of being an outsider, a third wheel or like an intruder in your family.
These are all questions that new partners commonly ask in a step or blend family situation.
Navigating how to find the right balance between being involved enough with stepchildren and not overstepping, can be one of the most challenging aspects of the stepparent role.
