Here is what gets me --> I get her position, really I do. Much of it, I have lived myself and would not want anyone judging me for it. However, STOP playing the pity/soul-mate/single-mom card and just tell the GD truth!
I will respect the truth, no matter what it is, or how bad. But I don't appreciate lies geared toward ONE thing: To pull on people's heartstrings.
It is called Emotional Manipulation. And some people are masters at it. I cannot blame all that on MF cuz with Emily, she's been selling this story for years.
Sadly, she is pretty/sweet enough that these tactics were not necessary. She seems to love her daughter, and be a nice enough girl. Why wasn't the REAL truth good enough??
