The evolving nature of relationships
Brent and I will always be tied together by our kids. Our goals for parenting are fairly similar even if our methods differ. I think we are both united in sadness that this is difficult on the kids, even though I think it’s going pretty well for them, all things considered.
It’s weird for me, to be trying to navigate this change in our relationship. Obviously, I want to have a friendly and supportive relationship together, but I know that I have a lot of unresolved issues, that really won’t get resolved. I need time and space to move beyond them but I can’t always be afforded that because we NEED to come together on things involving the kids. So it will take more time, and that’s just fine because in the long run, the most important thing is to make things good for the kids, and we are both focusing on that.
