No one understood why this father sends flowers to his divorced wife - but then he exposed the amazing truth
Every couple that get married and have children hope that their love will last forever and to keep living happily ever after.
But sometimes for different reasons, its not always the case.
Whether you have children or not, breaking up is one of the painful experiences in life. And as we all know, its easy to get angry and hold a grudge, and to be honest - it never helps anyone.
And that's usually the case when there are children around. We think that most will agree that no child deserves to be locked in a prison of anger between two adults that decide to go on their seperate ways.
In a Facebook post that got published and became viral like wildfire, father Billy Flynn described the way in which he handled his maritial situation after the divorce. His main point: the kids don't have to suffer because of the breakup.
Again, for alot of different reasons, not everyone can find perfect solutions like this ex-husband, and of course we all have the right to be angry and feel disappointed. But we think that we all can learn from this man and from his amazing attitude.
Here's the post Billy wrote:
'I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give her and helped them make her breakfast', he writes.
'Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time. This annoys me. So ima break it down for you all.'
Billy explains how in 'raising two little men', showing them how to treat their mom is incredibly important.
'The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships', he says. 'I think even more so in my case because we are divorced'.
We think his post pretty straight forward speaks for itself and delivers a powerful and important lesson for us all.
So far the post have been shared more than 200,000 times by people, and received thousands of comments especially from other divorced parents with young children who felt a sense of realizing how his things were resonating directly with them.
As one woman commented: "When parents can't stay married, it's vital they give their kids permission and opportunity to love the other parent. Just because they're done with each other doesn't mean the kids are".
