One of my friends right now is having the worst time of her life. The father of her children cheated on her and the reason the guy her is that she's just using the girl for him to go abroad. How pathetic this guy is. My friend didn't fall for his lies and filed for child support. Now the new girl is creating a buzz on their town that my friend was bitter and just wants the guy to come back to her that's why she's filing for complaints and support. I know my friend is just worried about her son and daughter who's only 1 and 3 yrs old. She told me that is it really what the others are thinking? That she's just bitter because their relationship ended? People sometimes are sick minded and doesn't even see the true picture of a situation. Any mother would do what she did and think of her kids first before herself. Besides the guy lied to her for 8 months (he kept his relationship on the other girl that long) and my friend thought that their doing okay but really not. I just hope that other people will just mind their own business instead of minding others. Do you think she's bitter or just doing the right thing for her kids? I think she is sincere with her concern about her kids.

i think its alright for you to feel this way.. afterall you think your friend is simply being taken advantaged of. but the decision really is with your friend, and not yours. You can only give advise and it is up to her to take the advice or not...

I think that your friend probably is sincere with her concern for her children. I know that there are a lot of times when relationships end that there is one or the other person that was in the relationship that is bitter about the fact that the relationship ended. However, in cases where there are children involved, I don't really think that bitterness ever really plays a role. Instead I think that what happens is almost always for the best interest of the children.

We are all humans, and it's normal to feel bitter over things. HOwever feeling bitter does not mean we have to do things according to what we feel. ONly those people involved knows what they are doing. Rumour spreaders or gossipers are just out to grab attention on themselves, to prove their existence in the relationship, as she's been hidden for 8 months. She's just desperate. There's no need for worries for your friend. She's doing good.

I've experience some betrayals just last year. Its really painful and I really dont deserve it. I guess being bitter is inevitable.
