“It’s just that, in my past relationships, I’ve had some problems.”
*Steve had a bad habit of slagging off his daughter’s mother, *Dawn, as well as others from his previous relationships. It was never his fault when things went wrong. He wanted me to ‘join in’, but I refused, which led to numerous arguments. The way I saw it then and still see it now, their relationship has nothing to do with me. I wasn’t there when they were together, nor was I there for the duration or the end of it. It’s none of my business. My main concern was for the child who seemed to the centre of it all for monetary gain.
It was one thing bad mouthing his ex’s, but his daughter’s mother? That’s just disrespectful. But it got me thinking… if he could say those awful things he did about her, what was he capable of saying about me?
