Good day to everyone, past, present and future. Ive been pondering for quite some time whether to start a blog or not. To blog or not … that is the question. Ive never done something like this, I dont know what it entails, and quite frankly scares the bejesus out of me. Something about putting my life out there for everyone to read makes a guy a tad nervous.
Nervous… but necessary.
Since 2011, I have been going through a separation. A separation that involves 2 amazing kids. I’m not an expert… wait. I am officially an expert on being dragged through the mud, and forced to fight every single day for my kids. I’m not a dead beat, I’m not a part time dead beat. I am a father. A very involved father. During the past 8 years, I’ve scoured the internet looking for advice, looking for any sort of help. Its hard to find. I’ve found biased people, I’ve found fathers and mothers with an opinion, but opinions that either didn’t fit, or were so far out of this galaxy that you are forced to just shake your head. I was literally forced to go through this on my own. Wading in cautiously… but quickly finding out you get pushed into the deep end very quickly.
So here I am finally at the end of 2019, and my battles and wars with (we’ll call her Trudy) might be finally coming to end. Which brings me to my blog.
This blog is not just for fathers. Its for parents, written by a father. I am beginning my journey into the digital realm of blogs and websites, to offer advice, to tell my story and hopefully help not only fathers, but all parents, and help parents see everything from a 360 degree view. Its hard being father, and I’m positive its damn hard being a mother. Id like to be able to shed a light, and show how every choice, every situation, every snide comment affects and changes a separation.
This blog is about unbiased, transparent advice. My email will always be splattered on my posts. Email me.. email me alot. Im here to tell my story, offer advice, and answer questions. Im not a doctor, or a therapist, or anything like that.
Im a dad.
