Another low day for me. Realisation that my kids are with another man. I know it happens to thousands of people but it's hard to take. Feels like yesterday that we split up still. In a way I miss family life. It was better than this. Just wondering if I have been too nice to her and people in general. I seem to get burned very easily just by being kind.

Re: Moving after divorce with a manipulative ex wife.

I know how you feel. You have got to work on rebuilding your life so you are happy again. When you're happy, it won't hurt so much.
My ex wife's new h is very wealthy although he's never worked. Gets to take my kids on all kinds of trips I could never afford. It happens.

Re: Moving after divorce with a manipulative ex wife.

What I did was attend therapy weekly for about six months. I can't begin to explain what I got out of it. I learned so much about myself, the relationship, and about how to react to certain of her behaviors. Therapy helped me come away content, adjusted, and at peace. If I should enter another relationship I firmly believe it will be baggage free. It's important she doesn't pay for anyone's past sins.

The best gift I can give to my future is to be emotionally healthy and over the last relationship.

Moving after divorce with a manipulative ex wife.

Here is what I will say. My ex is engaged to this terrible hag. She is so mean to my sweet sensitive kids. They say nothing to dad about her being mean because they want him to be happy. My kids are 7 &8. They love their daddy. He's a loser. They love him just because he's their dad. This guy will never be able to replace you. No matter how much money he has or how nice he is. You're their dad and he can't be you. Be the best you can be and be there for them. I'm not implying you are a loser. Just using my ex as an example.

Yes, there are people who view kindness as weakness and try to take advantage. That's just unfortunately life.
