At least you are honest that you over react… sometimes… (:

There is nothing wrong with being an “emotional” person. Emotions is what makes us human. And I agree with you that not being listened to can be upsetting. But it’s not that we get “emotional” that can be problematic not just for us but those we relate to, it’s how we handle our emotions or choose to respond.

Does how we handle our emotions make things better or worse? Does how we respond draw us closer to the people we love or make them pull away?

Love your honesty… so refreshing… (:

I’m SO VERY AGAINST “no contact” when used to try to get someone to miss you or feel ignored and as a result initiate contact. But when used to cut ties with a (verbally, mentally, emotionally or physically) abusive or toxic person in your life, I am ALL for it.

Now, get to the business of “growing up” because if you don’t, you will most likely attract another toxic and even immature partner.

I can only imagine what your relationship must have been like. My personal opinion is you did what was best for your son. You tried counselling and it didn’t work, what else were you supposed to do?

Your ex is most likely not going to change, and when your son is old enough, he’ll have first hand experience of what his father is really like, and will be grateful you did what you had to do.

For now, focus on giving your son all the tools he needs to grow into an emotionally mature adult.

I believe that you love her and care about her. But if someone says she doesn’t feel that you connect with her emotionally, it doesn’t matter how you feel, how much you care or what you will do for her.

There is a reason why she feels the way she feels. You need to genuinely try to understand what that reason is. It’s different for everyone and for every relationship, so I can’t give you a random reason without a good understanding of your relationship. What I do know however is that, until you “get” why she feels that she needs to respond a certain way, you can not get through to her on an emotional level.
