    Default Thoughts?

    Feeling a little unsure about how I'm feeling...

    My exH walked out on myself and our baby 7 months ago and broke my heart.

    Today I received a Mother's Day card from... you guessed it! It's my first Mothers Day so I'm feeling a little tender anyway.

    Your thoughts?

    I think it's a lovely thing, tbh. You know, it's an effort, and it shows some kind of good intentions there somewhere. I can understand why you'd be ambivalent about it. I can promise you that you'd feel pretty awful if your ex didn't acknowledge it x

    Sorry to butt into the sp section but I think it is a decent gesture. Sorry that you are upset by it.

    I think it is a lovely gesture! It may feel a bit confusing, but trust me, I'd say he is doing it because he appreciates you as the mother of his child, at the very least. I don't think it's a bad thing at all.

    Obligatory sorry to crash in the sp area...

    I think it's a really nice gesture on his part.

    I hope you have a wonderful first mothers day
