A letter to my Ex-Husband,
I hope you find joy in the things you seek. I hope that you can figure out who you really are deep down and what you want in life. I pray that one day your eyes are opened and you step up to being the father you need to be. I am not angry with you, I am angry with the choices you make. Day in and day out you make decisions for yourself only with zero to no regard to our children.
It's okay that you left. I am better off. Honestly so are our children. They didn't need to learn to treat women the way that you do. They will learn to love their partners and treat them equally. They will honor their partners and cherish them. I hope that one day you will learn how to do the same.
It's okay that you don't choose the kids first, because I always will. I will always have their backs, I will always protect them, but most importantly I will always love them. In case you didn't already know they know how to exist without you. They are growing up so well. I wish you could see the smiles and laughter they share with each other. I wish you had been able to see those first steps from our youngest child.
It's okay you got another woman pregnant and abandoned us. Maybe this will be the child you know how to protect and cherish. Maybe you will finally step up for a child you helped create, because you haven't tried for our 3 boys.
I don't have any ill wishes for you. I wish for you to grow, to learn, and to be successful. I wish for you to find true joy and not settle for the standards your father placed. I wish for you to not end up just like your father. I wish you happiness, hope, and peace. I pray for you to find comfort through your past and grow from those mistakes and misfortunes. You are better than you give yourself credit for.
Sincerely, Your non-disgruntled ex-wife
