Good morning David:
I really appreciate this forum, but I have noticed that I'm too nosey and open with my comments. I have decided limit my responses. However, I try to only comment from my experiences. Here goes, my parents divorced when I was 10 years old. My anxiety and fear was high. I'm 65 years old, and I still remember my wonderful father telling me, " me and your mother are getting divorced. I'm not divorcing you. I will always live close enough for y'all to walk to me if y'all need me. I will never leave you." I remember skipping off to play on the swings. Happy that my father declared that to me. When my Dad left me, he was in a box.
Find your words David, sounds like you did your job. Your job is not over, navigate your young son into brighter waters. And remind him that you never left. Your staunch integrity will allow you to be lucid.
Years ago, in a disastrous relationship with the mother of my then 8 year old son, I fled the relationship for my sanity. I was depressed, suicidal, sought out and received help. I maintained a relationship with my son, visiting, having him visit me. I paid his mother child support and did what I could to make sure he had what I didn’t when I was his age, I thought. I remarried, and while he was here with us over the holidays he broke down to my wife while I was asleep telling her he never really got over me leaving. Is there any way to salvage what I have done to this young man? He’s 20 now. In college. Everything I wasn’t at 20, driven, focused, a good student, a good friend, a kind soul. Please, any advice helps, my heart hurts for him.
