When we fall in love with someone and build a family with them, we constantly hope and work hard for it to persist. I don’t think that there is anyone in this world who would intentionally want their love to shatter, the love which they carved brick by brick.
Heartbreaks are tough to get over if the love you once shared was real. And no matter how painful it sounds, sometimes, no matter how hard you try, the love fades away and two people have to walk opposite ways for a better future for themselves and their partner. Sometimes, holding on too tightly causes more pain so we need to know when it’s time to let go.
However, things become ten times serious and hurtful if there are kids involved in between parting of two adults. No matter what the scenario is, no kid deserves to be raised half-heartedly or by one parent. It harms the child on an emotional and mental level.
Somehow, a father decided on bringing a change. Billy Flynn, a father who was going through a divorce decided on making sure that his kids do not face any hardships due to the divorce he was experiencing. It took the internet by storm, what he did next.
He wrote a heart-warming post which hit people right in the feels. Every word made so much sense that it was impossible to not think about it more deeply and share these words.
Here is the post, written by Billy:
“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 modeling good relationship behavior for your kids, get your shit 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.”
This is beautiful on so many levels. Kids don’t do what you tell them to. They do what they see you doing. Be a good example to your kids. Please remember that they copy everything that they see around them. 8 out of 10 times, bad adults are a result of broken families and domestic violence which they have seen in front of their eyes all their life. Don’t turn good kids into bad adults. It’s your responsibility as a parent.
