Hi there, what’s triggered it is your ex playing happy families. My ex is going for father of the year and I have pangs when I hear his step daughter is visiting him (she sent me a nasty letter saying I destroyed our family). It’s just that I have fond memories of us all on holiday etc. I’ve known her most of her life. But it’s a price we have to pay for our freedom. It does get easier as time goes on. You know it’s just a matter of time before he lets them all down too. Try to concentrate on you. Do something nice for yourself. It’s not too late to re engage with family members. If you’ve finally decided your marriage is over. Go no contact and start again with your extended family. ❤️
