All of exh family and friends but Christ he can keep them! To be fair I was find of his family but they didn't support me much either with him or with practical stuff. His friends are a bunch of misogynistic, bigoted, bitter old men. I am so so glad I don't have to see them anymore
I finally realised that they weren't worth it. You know who your real family & friends are at these times! It's been really hard but have different support networks now and don't look to family for support. I stay well away from the unsupportive friends too. Like I say though, it has NOT been easy.
That's right. You get some people (a rare minority usually!) who step right up to the mark and help you along. I find that I spend much more time with single people and that most of my friends are single parents now too. The 3 people that I spent ALL my time with 2 years ago are out of my life now completely and in their place are completely different and much more positive relationships. (Apart from my children of course who I have been living with all along.) I spend a lot of time on my own but this suits me well and when I do choose to spend time with other people, I am rewarded with warmth, connectedness, great advice, fun times and the beginnings of some new (and some revamped) friendships. Don't let the assholes get you down and don't spend time thinking about them. They're not supportive and you don't need them in your life in good or bad times.
