I've been divorced for 2 years. Have been seeing a guy off and on over that time but I've never been able to truly commit. I just don't care to be in a relationship at this point. BUT....one thing I have noticed is this. I have 2 children of my own. I'm used to my children. I know their behavior, I know how they act...I know them....they are my children. My "friend" also has 2 children. They are COMPLETE opposites of my own children. His kids are loud, rude, disruptive, etc. And he doesn't really discipline them. Everyone always compliments my kids on their behavior and how polite they are and well behaved...and that's what I'm used to. I've always loved children and always knew I wanted to be a mom. Of course I never thought I would be divorced and in a situation like this. My "friend's" kids tell me they love me when I see them. I say it back. But to be honest....deep down...I just don't. I feel so horrible saying that or even admitting that. Am I even capable of loving someone else's children? If not his...anyone else's???? It's sad to me that I have always loved kids and I of course adore my own, but I don't really care to get to know anyone else's kids or love them. I don't know if it's even possible for me.
