So my Dad passed five years ago. At age 72, this year, my mother began dating a guy and appears to be madly in love. I am extremely uncomfortable and weirded out by this. Namely, seeing her with somebody else. I want to be happy for her, but my feelings are conflicted. She is spending Xmas eve with him and his extended family, the first time in 46 years we won't be together. Christmas day, our usual guests can't make it, so it will be me, mom and her boyfriend. Now I'm getting really uncomfortable....
Anyone here experienced a similar situation where you were a middle age adult and this occurred? I'm looking for advice/opinions on how you reacted and processed this turn of events.
Thanks for any feedback on this.
