In no sense am I saying that I was this perfect husband. I made mistakes but I owned up to them and am willing to change and get better for myself and my children. Its just hard for me to 180 her yet still be there for my kids. I tried expressing concerns about how my kids are starting to flounder in school and it turns into an argument. I back off Saturday,Sunday and Monday and she accuses me of being mad and ignoring her. "For what it's worth I hate That you're so mad at me." via text.
