Written with such wisdom Bridget. My ex and I are awful at co-parenting. I fall into the pattern of blaming him but need to also look at myself — the fallout affecting my daughters.

We’re in the courts and that is even worse. I know in fact that hell exists.

There is an alternative — self work, forgiveness, acceptance, love and the realisation, well if we can create intelligent children together perhaps we can manage this co-parenting thing.

Nearly two years later there have been many mistakes. When you think about it co-parenting emerges after the devastation of a break-up. In the most emotionally mature adults that would be trying then throw in resentment the desire for justice, revenge, loss ….

I could write a book … I did start to but I became stuck in my miserable thoughts.

As you begin to wakeup and seek alternatives — I strive for peace and I’ll try again, and again - my children and my own sanity worth it. Bit by Bit.

Today I define myself as marvellous — that’s all. I write about my experiences some less than marvellous sometimes more.
