I am very saddened to hear of your news today @BIB, but I think you and ex DP have made absolutely the best decision as far as your DD is concerned.
Life is too short to live in an unhappy relationship, and personally I think a lot of couples parent better apart than they do together anyway. It sounds, from what you have said, like both you and ex DP have DD's very best interests at heart and I think that is commendable. At the end of the day, as long as she feels loved and stable and supported, and the two of you can work together for her benefit - well, the better off she will be in all of this.
As for you my love, you must be feeling very fragile and emotional right now. Even decisions that are 'for the best' can be gut-wrenching to make. I am sending you the warmest of hugs today
@BIB, you are one of the strongest, wisest, and most resilient women I have ever had the pleasure to come across. I have no doubt, as you and DD move forward together, that you will build a lovely new life together.
Please be kind to yourself, and we'll try not to sink the ship while you are away!
Hugs always ,
