I'm happy. I'm proud. And I'm grateful for the divorce, 13 years ago, that allowed me to grow into the dad I am now.
Maybe we would feel something. Perhaps we would experience regret, joy, sadness, and other deep feelings. It's okay not to want to dip back into it.
How is it possible that you don't care for or support your co-parent? How can that much anger be misdirected at the former love of your life?
Every single blow against me is felt by our children.
My motto for dealing with my ex-wife and her anger: Focus on your children. Love your children.
Let's do this TOGETHER. It's much easier if we're on the side of our kids and not against one another.
Now that they are mostly out of their mom's house they have a bit more autonomy of thought. And when she throws a shitty bomb in between us, we can usually identify the *bs* and choose to not bite.
Dads are equal parents. Some dads are deadbeat dads. Some moms are deadbeat moms. Some parents are assholes. Let's not be assholes to each other.
