Add me to the list too. The only thing these ‘types’ are happy with is total destruction and you’d think the kids would be a no go and only you will be the target. When you realise what you’re dealing with and start picking yourself up they then will move on to the child because they don’t have as much hold on you. This is the toughest part because you have to not engage, greyrock and ignore the behaviour which is near impossible when you can see the impact on your innocent child. The smirk I know all to well. A few days later my anxiety and bad feeling from that look is matched with some action of control by the ex. You get so used to the pattern that you start to trust you gut again and know somethings planned to hurt you or your child. Stay strong and remember you’re not alone. There’s so many of us experiencing exactly the same and secretly rebuilding ourselves whilst protecting the children from the damage we can’t stop. Remember mums you’re dealing with a toddler who you’ve said no to. Have you ever tried reasoning with a toddler having a tantrum? Stay strong and be proud of how far you’ve come.
I don’t have the time to read and reply to your post right now but had to thank you so much for making my night by mentioning dungeons and dragons. I can relate to your post and the adjustment to personal ambitions. Whatever is going on in your life you will conquer. The fact that you’ve held on to the D&D gem you’re a hero in many peoples eyes. That goes to an 11.
Just wanted to say I’m going through the same thing myself with a 41/2 month old and still breastfeeding. A break up and having your baby taken away between feeds I find very distressing. I have no advice to give you just wanted to say you’re not alone x
