This seems to happen to me quite often -- there is some argument or disagreement between family members (nothing to do with me!) but somehow I always seem to get "dragged" into it and I am expected to "take sides" (usually with my hubby), Last night at the dinner-table my husband had a minor disagreement with my son (who ended up taking his dinner plate away from the table and eating elsewhere after he had been shouted at!) Then my husband got angry at me because I had not taken sides with him -- it is sooooo difficult for me because I find any confrontation difficult to deal with so I try and stay clear of conflict. I also hate to feel that I am supporting one person over another (that "piggy-in-the-middle" feeling!) My husband was still angry with me this morning coz I had not supported him, (why cannot he just not "move on"?) and now I feel soooo upset and miserable and the worse thing is the disagreement was nothing to do with me --- but I am the one who ends up feeling rotten and is if it was me that did something wrong!!! Any ideas how I should handle this without feeling sooo guilty myself??? xx
