How to coparenting with a broken heart?
I have been through hell & back with my BD. He has cheated on me multiple times in our relationship. Inconsistent on whether he wanted to be with me or not. Recently he decided that he wants to "do him" again meaning here we go..breaking up again. This time I'm not even interested in getting back together because clearly he is not the man for me. I know I deserve better. I don't even want to be around him anymore because of all the times he has done me wrong. However, I can't just cut him off completely like any ol ex. He's the father of my unborn child. Now I'm trying to figure out how to successfully coparent with a broken heart. Everytime I see him.. I get angry from all the hurt he's caused me. I just can't stand to look at him. I know I should put my feelings aside for our son but man it's so hard. I'm so sad and hurt and lonely. This isn't how I pictured having my first child would be. It's so depressing.
I’ve been where you are and I’m sorry to say it doesn’t get much easier. My little one it four months old and it’s still hard. I know with my other kids dad it took a while to get in the swing of co parenting but it takes time and patience.
It’s will be ok mama!! You will find someone that loves you and your son and you will forget what an ass he is!!
@mandylee62 Hi! Do you have any suggestions for dealing with a narcissist? I’m pregnant and my ex says nothing but hurtful things and that he will see me in court. My babies not even due until December and so far not one bit of help and if anything the anxiety he’s causing me is crazy. I continue to let him insult and try to provoke me (which I’ve learned I just have to absorb and not respond to) but since he’s so manipulative I’m scared he will try to take my baby or waste my financial resources just to hurt me, which is a situation I’ll do anything to avoid so I can properly raise my child. Any help you can provide based on your experience is appreciated
