Who? Aren’t they how you got into this mess in the first place? But your issues have nothing to do with women on the whole. You may have legitimate issues with one woman, but that’s where it ends. If you try hard enough, you can develop new issues with any other woman you choose! But before you take that huge step, you need to work on you. You are no good to any other woman — or your child(ren) — before you are good to you.
Now that you don’t have an unhappy marriage or relationship to worry about, you have more time to focus on you.
There have to be things you have wanted to do for yourself, projects you have wanted to work on. Get after them. It will take time to get your head into what you want to be doing, but you have to keep at it. Sooner or later, things will click. When they do, you will be buoyed by your progress. The person you were before things went haywire will slowly re-emerge.
The progression will not be linear. You will have your ups and downs, but never lose sight of who you are and what you mean to your child(ren). Before you love them, you must love yourself, and a man who loves himself and his child(ren) doesn’t have to look for women…they will look for him.
