This is a complex one.
But, the fundamentals are that my partner, that I love so, so much, occasionally gets overwhelming guilt. His children are 6 and 9. The 9 year old misses her mum when spending longer stretches of time with dad (my partner). She cries, and is sometimes inconsolable, despite my partner being the most wonderful dad.
He initiated the split with the children’s mum. She did not want to split, but he was incredibly unhappy.
When he tells me about these episodes with his daughter, I never know what to say. I start to feel responsible myself somehow... he says it hurts him so much to feel his own daughter doesn’t want to be with him.
Has anyone else experienced this? What advice do you have?
Thank you! Aurora
