You can be a family without being in a relationship with him, especially if he's the one you noted in your other post. You can still care about each other and your child without being together. Think carefully before getting back together for a child
He's not my recent ex, I left him years ago and I'm going to be careful, I plan to stay single and focus on my wellbeing and mental health and just making meaningful friendships.
The situation I was in with my child's father was worse I'd say, emotional mental and physical abuse, he says he wants to do counselling so we can talk and deal with the past but I feel like a relationship ever would be a terrible idea.
I usually blindly get into situations I regret later on so building and maintaining a relationship with myself seems key.
Was he always like that? And how long were you with him for?
Sounds like a good decision. Even if it hurts xxx
I've been with him for about 5 months, things just aren't getting better, he's always apologizing for lying and hiding things from me. I feel manipulated constantly.
He basically was starting to help himself but then we. Started a relationship and it went downhill. He says he doesn't want me to give up on him because he loves me and wants to be with me but sometimes love isn't enough.
He's a good person and has good intentions at times but I try to hold him accountable for his actions, it's just tiring I tell him I'm not his parent or caretaker and he has to help himself and get sober. He wants to but there are so many excuses
