Return or leave her
I have ended a 4 years relationship with a mother of 3 teenagers last April. I left a well paid job and moved 300 miles to her twon so the kids would be able to see their father and mom 50/50.
Long story short, I had to take a lower salary job as digital marketing director in that town and was frustrated to the point that I have created my own agency to help her more with the house and stuff. Meanwhile I took care of the kids, maintaining and repairing the house. Kids we cool even if I only got significantly closer to the youngest boy who is into sports. Beginning of the year, We were both overworked and she blew up on me about me not loving her after all I sacrified to be with her and the kids... So I left because we couldn't talk things out.
Months passed, we saw each other a few times because she missed me. I didn't want to get back together because everything I did was not enough and I felt the kids were not comfortable around me. I gave them space while I was in the house so they could talk to their mom anytime.
Last week we saw each other and we talked about coming back together. I'm not sure if it's a good idea since the relationship with her is really good, but I don't know what to think about the kids. My ex wants me to fix my relationship with the 2 older kids that don't give a damn about me and are constantly trying to make things worse for my ex.
Am I stupid to want to go back in there? Or anyone else broke up and had to think about pros and cons of getting back having the kids comfort in mind?
