Committing to a Man, that’s Neglected His Commitment to His Child

Before I dive deep into this post, let me first say that this is not a post meant to bash anyone or their parenting abilities necessarily. I’m proud to have created a platform that doesn’t make a habit of judging other people or hurling out insults. However with that said, there are some things I tend to have a very strong opinion about, and relationships between estranged parents and their children is one of them. I probably have such strong opinions because I don’t really have much a relationship with my own father, but that’s a story for a different post. Anyway, let’s go ahead and get started.

I Can’t Stand His Child’s Mother

T,

I’m having a little issue in my relationship.  My boyfriend and I were doing just fine until I met the mother of his child a few weeks ago.  She is a major b*tch.  There is no other way to put it.  When my boyfriend’s daughter had her 6th birthday party, I went because the little girl invited me.  She is my little buddy and my boyfriend encouraged me to go, so I went.  When I got to the party, the baby mama threw me some major shade.  The only time she addressed me was when she was insulting me calling me things like “little boy.”  I spoke to my boyfriend about it after the party, and he told me to just let it go. That it wasn’t worth it.  Which had me feeling some type of way, which caused an argument between him and I.  We’ve since agreed to move past all of this, but in the back of my mind, I’m wondering what happens when this occurs again with this woman?  Hopefully your advice will help me.

Letter to an Absentee Father from an Abandoned Son

Dear Dad,

I want to first off state how weird it is for me to write you this letter.  As a man in his late 20s, I didn’t think I would still have to be dealing with “daddy issues.”  But unfortunately, here I am.  I figured if I wrote you this letter to get it all out, it would somehow be therapeutic for me.  That I would get all my feelings out, and tell you all the things I’ve wanted to say, but never had the courage to say it.   Oh and look, I don’t even expect a response from you.  So no need for you to bother. Welp, here goes nothing.
