just feeling like anything i want to do for me is third, i feel i have to see to my kids needs (which is my job ) but i also have to help my ex all the time when she sees them and it wears me down, i dont get a break and thats fine but it be nice to talk to others in same situation
Hi I don’t live with my kids but I see them regularly and have to balance looking after my 2 children and helping the mother to my children out cause she has a disability I have just dropped out of uni to help more with my children and their mum and feel like I want to go back to uni but need to be here for kids and kids mum I feel like what I want becomes third place too in a way. I feel very guilty about wanting my own life. Like a job and sgoing back into study and very stuck.
Yep – I have mine 50 /50, and I’m a Dad to four kids. I also have an ex that is being difficult and causing problems so I feel your pain.. Kids are hard work, but they’re worth every second of it 🙂 Robbie, have you considered something like an Open University degree that allows you to do it remotely in your spare time?
Hi Robbie , yes I feel guilt too because I want to study too, because I began uni but it did not fit in with my responsiblities with my kids so I deferred but then had no choice but to leave, Carlos I had same problem with my ex in the beginning , but I found out that no matter what ur ex says about you or does it can only helps you to ignore it to be the better person 😉 because I learnt the hard way
