Some idiot friend of mine posted on his Facebook status that starting now his life is going to be all about him, taking care of himself, and making himself happy, screw every one else. He's a father and swears he loves his kids. Well hate to burst his bubble, but life stops becoming all about you when you become a parent. I wanted to comment "Hey idiot! What about a, b, &c?" But I don't want to start drama on Facebook. Some people are just dumb!

Maybe he meant that in a different way than you took it....don't jump to conclusions on the Internet. He might have just worded his feelings wrong.

Maybe he meant that not quite as literally as you took it.  Taking care of the kids is implied, but if you are coming from a bad place, then its perfectly sensible to say its going to be about me now....even if me includes the kiddos as well.

I hope so, otherwise we're gonna have words.

Well if he's gonna turn into a deadbeat I don't want to be friends with him honestly.  I have no respect for deadbeats and I won't associate with them either.  He already knows this though.

I say that too. Im going to be about me, and stop worrying about doing for everyone else. I am sick of doing for others and them not being grateful. Has NOTHING to do with my df or my children.

It was probably about his relationships with adults. I feel like that too but I'm not going to post it on Facebook (SO'S parents already think I put too much of my life out there if I so much as post a song lol).
