How do you deal with the drop off when you still love your ex?

Hi ladies,


how do you all deal with having to see your ex when dropping off your kids, especially when you still love him and you are not over him?  I'm trying not to beg my ex to come home since I know we're not good together but sometimes I can't help myself and I crack...

Focus on the kids. Make it business only. Only talk to him about the kids. Be civil but cool.

You can do this.

That's tough, I'm sorry. I agree with Andrewsmom, business only. In the beginning, I noticed I couldn't look him in the face (self protection method), but over time it just got better. Hang in there.

Well, I don't know you. I don't know how long you've been seperated/divorced whatnot...any chance to reconcile?

It's hard at first but it does get easier. I had the same problem at first. Just focuse on the kids and remember what is best for them in the end.

I know how you feel, I'm in the same boat but he cheated on me and left me. I don't look at him or talk to him. We just meet in a public place and sit at diffrent tables while he plays with his son. He can't take him alone because his new girlffriend isn't allowed around my kids. She's the one my husband cheated on me with and left me.

I force myself to remember the reason we broke up and his bad qualities (even if the good did outweigh the bad)

Think of why you are no longer with the ex.  Sooner or later you remind yourself enough of why you two aren't together.
