I am a divorced dad of 2 . My ex strained the few friendships that we had and has left the children (whom I av custody of ) & I very isolated.
I posted a friendship request a while but haven’t managed to establish some friendships as yet. I find myself especially, very lonely n yearning to av an adult conversation, friendships as the children at least some school friends.
My life revolves around the children, work, n study, which occupies me, but still would av some room for friendships.
It’s hard putting oneself out there n wearing ur heart on ur sleeve, but as the old saying goes, “u don’t ask u don’t get”, “knock n the door shall be opened /or slammed on ur face lol,” but u ain’t gonna know till u knock.

Problem people av from abusive (whether emotional, psychological, physical) marriages / relationships is the consequences they av 2 deal with even after they leave the abuse behind.
We here all share some story of some form, we av bn dealt whatever it is we a undergoing,. Question is how a we as individuals willing/able 2 accept that, move on.n make the most of what we cn ??
Yes it’s very fulfilling 2 know that I’m in control of the 2 bambinos n that I provide em with the best care I cn, but I also do recognise I nd some social fulfilment in reconnecting with someone/s. N that way I know am in the best emotional, psychological state, to be the best dad, like a fine tuned machine lol.
Ps I posted a post recently titled “no shame no embarrassment ” n nobody responded 2 it, whether users found it offensive, weird, or stupidly courageous,, it would b good 2 know, the jury is still out!!!
