On the brink of 30, you will thank yourself for remembering to always find the beauty in breakdowns and see the glass half full. Immersing yourself in a life filled with vivacity, vigor, humbleness and adventures will keep you mentally healthy and happy. You are living a life full of self-love and creativity that you so deserve, and have always yearned for.
The only reason I feel like I can actually give tips for successful coparenting is because I practice them myself! My two daughters´ father and I separated seven years ago as a couple. But we did not stop being parents to our kids just because we couldn´t make our marriage work (and believe me, we tried to make it work!).
A common theme I have noticed in divorce situations is the desire between the exes to prove who is "the winner" and who is "the loser." The conclusion I have reached is that if there are two parents who want to prove that they are the winner, then although the winner may be inconclusive... the loser is certain. The KIDS are the losers.
The truth is, I said what I felt and believed in. I actually said what rings true to our own family's experience. If I said the right thing or not, I may never know, though I am absolutely sure I'll ask him fifteen years from now if he can quote me on this, and if he still believes in happy endings.
