Im so over this year i split with my ex and even though he took me to court to get 50/50 of the kids he still gets to have his cake and eat it too he is always drinking and it annoys me cause i always say yes to looking after the kids and helping him out this year was meant to be my nye and had made plans and everything then last week he turns around and tells me i will have to watch the kids as he has got some work down at falls (he is a chef) and no one else would watch the kids so now i have had to cancel my plans bring on next year i say im going to be a much tougher and leaner woman (once i learn how to say no)

  • Feel for you as you just want what is best for the kids, good luck with saying no and being strong


  • How frustrating for you because you want what is best for your children. I hope that you find inner strength to say no.


  • I can relate in a few ways, trouble with ex but he doesn’t help at all! So he can get…… And I have no family support. I feel “over it” too much lately.
    I hope you get your time on nye and things start going better for you.O


  • it is a nice story


  • I hope things have improved. A course in being assertive may be useful?


  • Doesn’t sound like he’s to responsible or reliable.


  • Kids come first. I hope you are doing a lot better this year. Good luck!


  • Hey it’s tough but you did the right thing….. Kids comes first! Hang on there and I’m sure things will turn out well


  • Learning to say no isn’t easy but very important, seems you are already alf way there hun. Good luck :)
