For once ever, a man’s Facebook rage about his ex is entirely inspiring.
This present Mothers’ Day, we recollect the Boston-based father Billy Flynn Gadbois, who chosen to shock his ex on her birthday by carrying her blossoms and cards with his kids.
“Per usual”, he says, “somebody asked me for what valid reason the hellfire despite everything I get things done for her constantly. This pesters me So ima separate it for all of you.”
Also, he continued to do as such.
It’s my ex-wife’s birthday today so I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give her and helped them make her breakfast. Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time. This annoys me. So ima break it down for you all. I’m raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships.I think even more so in my case because we are divorced. So if you aren’t modelling good relationship behaviour for your kids, get your sh*t together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you. Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever.
Though it could not be easy for him and we understand that. He continued:
We didn’t do as well as we would have liked in the first bit of our divorce. We had to take our lumps and learn our lessons along the way, that’s for sure. We had things to overcome on both sides to be able to set our own cr*p aside to focus on the kids instead of our own anger and resentments. It’s not easy, but it can be done! We’ve worked hard over time to establish our boundaries and find ways to manage our interactions so our own issues are minimalised or left at home when it comes to the kids. It’s an ongoing process but you can see a huge difference in the happiness and confidence and security of the boys since we started working at it.
