I saw this picture/post on Facebook today and it reminded me of a recent comment made by the ex…
I’m sorry u feel that way and have surrounded yourself with walls that limit the opportunities for positive experiences and relationships for u and the kids. I hope u find it in your heart to release the bitterness and forgive me….not for me but for you. It will forever hold you back.
Yeah, I have ‘forgiven’ you for myself at this point…I just haven’t forgiven you in the realm of what you’ve earned…and as a result treat you accordingly.
And truly, I don’t feel held back in ANY aspect of my life, personal or public, other than when I have to deal with the ex. Working on getting strong enough for me so I can remove all emotion…hard for a sensitive soul such as mine.
Probably good you’re not on coffee terms, coz it might have been spit in his face!
It’s when the character hasn’t changed eh… Even tho it doesn’t mean reconciliation, changes still need to be made… Like, if not for the kids, we wouldn’t be speaking, never mind friendly… But if were supposed to do that, be on good terms and not just go completely separate ways…. then you need to fix yourself, ask him, would you let you raise these kids? Coz I’m not sure I should!
I am always saddened when he makes his comments about how glad he is that I am his kids’ mom. How much he appreciates what I do for them and how much he respects me as their mom. (Mainly because he knows that there is no way he could do it on his own) I’m’ saddened, because all I can think is, “I’m sorry I can’t say the same thing for you.” I lost respect for him, and I can’t get it back because he hasn’t behaved in a way that would earn respect. If I had a choice, he wouldn’t be a part of my life. He’s not a man of character traits I value in many regards. It just makes me sad.
that might be the toughest thing for me too… especially when the kids are struggling, because he makes similar comments about me… if they were to go with him, they would be dropped off, fed, for the most part ignored, probably lost and/or forgotten now and then.. and then bought stuff they dont even need to make up for it… my big one turns 14 in a week and a bit, and i cant get a single thing out of him that he might want… which really just makes me want to buy him stuff more…but yep, complete lack of respect for him… and thats what he was chasing with his affair… wanted to be liked and treated like a man… sorry lol, not if you act littler than your kids! losers.
