Everyone wants to be happy, or at least I do. But what is happiness really?
For me, happiness is feeling good, for sure. And it’s also feeling needed, being surrounded by friends and family whom I love, and having a job I enjoy.
But your idea of happiness is probably different, and there are probably almost as many different kinds of happiness as there are people on earth.
For some people, happiness is having a family you love above all else or a partner you can live with for the rest of your life and share everything with.
But as most people know, in today’s society love doesn’t always last forever.
Many couples break up, and their children often get caught up in the middle.
The best nap is the kind where you smile in your sleep the whole time.
When parents bicker or argue before, during and after a break up, the worst outcome is probably the effect it can have on the children.
Some time ago, a guy named Billy Flynn posted a message on Facebook that quickly spread. His post is about how he he’d been handled his divorce to make it as painless as possible for the children.
It might not work for just about everyone, but in any case, I think it could inspire a lot of couples who have gone their separate ways.
Was craving ham and mashed potatoes so I dragged them to brunch. They're making me earn it.
“It’s my ex-wife’s birthday today so 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. 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.”
“I’m raising two little men. 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. I think even more so in my case because we are divorced. So if you aren’t modeling good relationship behavior for your kids, get your shit together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you.”
“Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever.”
