All couples who get married or have children hope that their love will remain alive and well throughout time and that they will continue to live a happy life together.
But for various reasons, this is not always the case.
Whether you have children or not, breaking up is one of life's most painful experiences. And as we all know, it's often easy to fall into anger and resentment, which truth be told rarely helps anyone.
Most notably, this is the case when there are children in the picture. I think we can all agree that no child deserves to end up trapped in anger when two adults decide to go their separate ways.
In a post that is currently spreading like wildfire across the world, father Billy Flynn describes how he decided to handle his family's situation following his divorce. His main point: his children should not have to be affected by the breakup.
Again, for various reasons, it may not be possible for all couple to find solutions as seemingly perfect as this ex-husband's, and certainly we all have the right to feel angry and disappointed. But I think, nevertheless, that most of us can learn something from this man's thoughts and attitude!
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."
Children do not do as we say, they do as we do. Please share Billy's words to inspire more people to show consciousness, love and care when it comes to children during separations!
