Blinded..

Have you ever been in a relationship where you look back and realize that there were signs he wasn't right for you?

When my ex and I were together, I thought he was god. I had a horrible break up with my sons dad and then ex came in the picture 1.5 years later. I thought that he was "sent" to me to prove I was worth the fairy tale ending.

But now that we broke up, I realize there were a lot of signs he wasn't and I should of left. For example: the way he treated his daughters mother, his little controlling ways (looking at my phone, telling me to always take my sons dad to court, just to name a few)

It makes me feel like a fool because I should of been smarter than all this. Now I have his child (she's 5 days old) and he hasn't even seen her. I don't even know if he knows she been born.

So have you ever been "blinded by love?"

(I'm not talking about meeting someone an then them completely changing throughout the relationship. I mean he was the same the whole time, you just ignored it or didn't realize it until after the break up.)

Yea, I have.

It's human nature, in some ways, to only see the good in someone you're in love with.

Congratulations on your new baby. I hope things work out the way you want them to.

Lol oh yea, my first boyfried. He was controlling, accusing, treated his mother like shit and had unexplained bruises (hickies) I was 17 and stupid. Luckily I had a good support system when I finally got a brain and decided to break up with him for good. My mom even had to get involved. Poor lady. I put her through hell those couple of years.

It sucks. I would like to think I can trust my instinct. But I can't. At least not when it comes to men.

And thank you. ;)

It happens to the best of us. I was blinded by love once, too. The best thing to do is to learn to not make those mistakes again. I also went to therapy after to help me figure out why I made those choices.

Congrats on your new baby :)
