Lately I have noticed myself stewing upon how irritating and controlling my dad's girlfriend is. They live in a different state so I don't have to see them very often but when I talk to him on the phone it is almost like he is brainwashed by her. It is starting to feel like I am loosing my dad.
When I was younger and a teenager I couldn't stand my dad's partners for other reasons. Back then it was about the divorce. I wanted him and my mom to get back together but I have learned to accept that. In my adult years I have really liked some of the women he has dated but this one is just too much to handle.
I don't want to say anything to him because I don't want to hurt his feelings. He also worries a lot and I don't want to put this on his plate. However, their relationship is starting to really bug me. I hate going to visit them because I will have to deal with her.
What are some ways to handle this?
