Omg….i am so happy I stuck it out in a shitty marriage. There was just no way my sons were going to think I abandoned them. It almost killed me, but I would take a bullet for my kids….and after reading that poem, I am so glad I made being a dad my priority. I went to almost every game or event and then one day,…it was just all over. Then, many approached me asking if I had regrets because they were feeling guilty they always told their kid “tomorrow” and now their kid rarely calls them. Mine call me every week, but then we have always talked, even when I was tired and didn’t want to. I don’t know how you never contact your kid, I just don’t understand.
