Why Do I Have a Negative Relationship with My Stepmother?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Distressed, who asks why they have such a negative relationship with their stepmother. It seems she’s always filled with anger and negative energy toward everyone and I always feel fear when I’m around her.

This situation is familiar for both of you because you were brothers in another lifetime. In that lifetime your stepmother was your older brother, was quite angry and violent, and took it out on you and you would run away from him. Although your brother cared for you in his own way in this other lifetime, he didn’t understand his behavior wasn’t positive and didn’t understand why you wouldn’t be close with him.

In your current lifetime the two of you decided to come back in and your stepmother would be angry again and you wanted to see if you were able to show kindness to your stepmother and try to understand. All that was wanted in spirit from both of you was to be in each other’s presence and try to understand what the other person was going through.

That doesn’t mean you need to be abused in this relationship, but knowing there was anger from another lifetime should be helpful. Know you’re trying to help your stepmother work through this anger and learn that even though someone is angry and negative with everyone, you would still be kind.

Distressed asks what lessons they’re meant to learn from each other. The Council says acceptance and love. No matter what, show love and try to turn the situation with your stepmother around. But don’t show love with expectations. Just show love. Whether your stepmother choses to grow and learn from your love is her spirit’s job. How does your spirit grow from the love you try and show? It was planned that you’d discover love no matter what else happened in your relationship. Allow the other person to be who they are and just accept them that way.

Distressed asks how they can improve their relationship with their stepmother? The Council advises not to expect the stepmother to change right away. But instead of running away in fear, which is how you handled this situation in your other lifetime, stay short periods of time and try to be pleasant. Listen to what your stepmother says and try to understand how her words affect her and how she sees her circumstances. All you need to do is try and understand and eventually your stepmother will notice what you are doing.

The Council says perhaps learning about what you experienced in this other lifetime will help you  be more patient and understanding in your current lifetime. As you become more patient and understanding, your stepmother will change.

You are on your path and will find your way by being excited you’re in this lifetime. And no matter what you created – whether it’s something you’re grateful for or something that’s challenging – you wanted to experience all of it. Help will be there for you, you’ll find your way through it, and you’ll grow.
