I am totally new to this forum. I just separated with my boyfriend ofn 5 years. We have a 3 year old together so I am trying to have things go as smoothly as possible. I have initiated our break up for so many reasons. To start out with he never helped with bills and I feel like I always had to be his mother. We were very young parents (20 years old). However I feel like our lives have been moving in two different directions for sometime. He can be very manipulative as he doesn't appreciate me until I am walking out of the door, at which point he tells me that I am walking out on his and never stand by him. But at the end of the day I feel that I am making the right choice.
My main concern and reason for joining this forum is my child. I want to know how to make things easier on him. How can I get over my serious separation anxiety if I am serious about our breakup? The most annoying this is all of the opinions flying at me. My mother-in-law (As I call her) is constanly telling me how detrimental our split is for my child. I understand it is not ideal however I am miserably unhappy with her son. I need help dealing with this!! Please help ladies. ANy adcive or stories on how children adjusted to divorced life..please let me know.
Im going through the same thing, i just left my boyfriend of 11yrs. and we have 7 kids together, It's tough i also get the negative feedback from the ex mother, also my mother and more, its all talk. Things do get better my new b/f is going through a divorec at the moment, it gets better just takes some time, it took me about a month to convince my ex that i wanted to take my 2 babies, were going to share custody.
