I have a lot of feelings about this. On one hand, i feel bad for him. But on the other hand, i want to know how his wife and kids feel. Just because you are physically present doesn’t mean you actually engaged in their lives. You can’t “ play catch up” on years that you may not have emotionally been available. But who knows, maybe he’s right and his daughter is clinging to her teenage mentality, we don’t know. I like Unicorn apparently were trouble when we are together who knew shirt like these because of the fact there are so many possible layers to them.
Nicole Ranieri My ex was present but never involved. He would come home from work and stare at TV until he went to bed. He was never present for school events. I would have to make him go. Now my kids are teenagers, they have basically no relationship with him. He makes no effort to call them and now he barely shows up on weekends. Its really sad.
Lisa Fitzwater I know if it was me and my daughters didn’t want to talk to me, I would never give up. I would do my best not to make them uncomfortable but it’s my job to make sure they know they’re loved unconditionally, even if they don’t want it. Seat down and touch on this Unicorn apparently were trouble when we are together who knew shirt and feel it. They could throw away every letter they get, and I’ll write another one the next day. there’s not one thing on this earth more important to me than them, and I wouldn’t give up. I couldn’t.
Sometimes someone just loses respect for someone and decides they don’t want to dedicate that part of their life to that person anymore or have that forced connection. Maybe she is not immature. Maybe she is making the mature decisions that are best for her and her family. Yes it hurts but you have to respect that. Especially if she is essentially saying “please stay away.”
It is her right to have relationships or not with whoever she chooses. She should not be forced into anything or told she is immature for not reciprocating his feelings. Maybe she is just done and moving on. We don’t know her side of the story.
