There Are Ex-Wives, and then there is You!

There Are Ex-Wives, and then there is You!

Trepidation is all I feel
from those who would, for their own agendas,
harm my spirit, and those I love,
with an avalanche of lies designed to malign my being,
me, portrayed as an abusive husband and father,
when I have been anything but that,
yet still these lies gather the ignorant to believe them,
and to despise me for all I am.

I am not perfect,
but rarely did my twenty three year old marriage
even rise to an argument, let alone abuse,
and it saddens me to know that my ex has for years been
disseminating these lies to all who will listen,
unbeknownst to me, her with a sweet smile on her face;
and I have lost so many friends,
and now I know why, after more than ten years.

How can one person create so much destruction,
so much hatred and conflict
using complete lies and fabrication as a weapon,
and for what reason none of us know;
she had disowned her own mother,
caused so much stress in her life it could kill her,
and now it seems to be breaking up her mother’s thirty five year marriage,
the mother wanting to escape the constant onslaught of lies and deceit.

Her own children don’t want to see her any more,
she is so self-centred and malicious,
and caused both of them such trauma,
they seek psychiatric help for clinical depression,
and cannot face their mother after what she has done,
as she continues to emotionally blackmail them;
she has turned all her siblings against her mother and myself,
blame an easy target to absolve herself.

My ex-in-laws are my family,
they are in their eighties and I look after them,
and I just watch as everything gets worse,
as this demon daughter destroys everything in her path,
maliciously and with intent,
to what end I have no idea; perhaps its money,
wants her mother gone to financially better her life,
or perhaps jealousy of my relationship with them.

In any case, what will happen, before everyone realises
this women is sick, unbalanced and dangerous to herself and others;
only time will tell.

    Tony, beloved friend, my heart and positive thoughts go out to you and your children. There is so much I could say about the situation and I wish I could help, but for now all I can do is be your friend and understand. I will keep you and yours in my prayers.

      Thanks Phyllis, the situation just gets worse and for what? She needs help but everyone believes her lies. and she continues to create disasters all around. I’ve never experienced anything like this and have no control over the damage she causes.

    Nothing I can say will improve this unfortunate situation, Tony. Why do people leave a long time relationship with so much malice if no abuse was involved? It is had to comprehend. Maybe there is much self-guilt involved with your ex-wife. The fact that you are closer to her own parents than she is says it all. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks John, yes it is hard to believe, I’m convinced there is something wrong with her mentally, because she was never like this when I was with her. She’s done so much damage and continues to do so, at the expense of everyone who loved her. Go figure!
