30 Days of Shamelessness: Day 14

14. hold yourself accountable — not guilty — for something crappy you did to someone else.
When a marriage breaks up because of problems between husband and wife, they usually leave with the problems unresolved. Which means the problems continue. And when you have to deal with child custody and child support, that just adds to the difficulty. It’s really really really hard to deal with an ex without letting any of the bad feelings show in front of your child. So I admit I’ve said a few things about my ex in front of my daughter that were not the best choice. I don’t feel guilty about it. I used to condemn other people for doing it, but when put in the same situation, I realized it would be hard for even someone like Mother Teresa not to say something bad once in a while. I want my daughter to have a good relationship with her dad, and I hope she can find a way to do that even though I would rather never have to see him again. And I hope I can do a little better at holding my tongue in the future so as not to put her in a position where she feels she has to choose one parent over the other.
