I’ve been encouraging my ex-husband to spend time with our son and to be an active part of his life… Maybe my encouragement is a little skewed, at least in the other person’s opinion. But, I’m encouraging it.
It’s extremely hard for me to sit idly by and watch my son be hurt.
Everyone tells me that I should stop encouraging it. Here’s the thing- my love for my son is STRONGER and GREATER than my wanting to avoid confrontation. I know what my son needs, what he wants. HE TELLS ME EVERY SINGLE DAY. He cries to me about what he wants and misses.
If only the other person would spend enough time with him to see how much he’s hurting….
