My ex, R., and his gf broke up.
I hurt for my children.
They have seen the demise of too many relationships.
This is why I haven't entered another relationship...
I didn't grow up with parents who were together.
I didn't see my mother in a healthy loving relationship...I knew she loved us... I just didn't see her in love.
I now know that it is just as important for children to see that you deserve that love as well... if they don't see how to give and take love... a sustaining love... a romantic love... then how can they emulate that in their own lives?
That is my one wish for my children... to have to have happy, healthy, sustaining loving relationships.
