Ok. For the last few days, you have been hearing only about one side. Like my Spouse, I too, have issues with my kids’ Dad (ex). You will likely hear a lot of similarities our stories are inexorably linked. Relationships are made better by mastering the art of simple communication.
Without this mastery, the mundane become stressful, the minute become momentous, and your patience runs thin. Have you ever counted how many different ways one can ask someone to comply with a mandated request?
It’s a lot.
The thing about simple communication is it requires two willing participants. If you don’t, you are simply wasting your time. How then do you get someone to listen? How can a person who perpetually lies face the reality their actions are a detriment to themselves, the children and anyone else that loves them. Truth is it may never happen. I am not holding my breath. I value life too much to bet on this one or this man (I used the word man very, very, very loosely). I have to accept the fact that each question, request, or statement by me can and will be misinterpreted or misunderstood.
Case in point: A simple request for a required tax form ordered by the Judge.
- 3 emails
- 3 months late to finally receive
It doesn’t have to be this hard. I suggest to avoid complicating matters. Invest your time on more important things in life. The kids.
As we prepare for my kids to arrive from their journey across the U.S. to stay for a week, we await when all the kids can play together and be.
