Perhaps your hard fought win isn’t what it seemed. In the race to beat your ex you both may end up the biggest losers.
Now, doesn’t this look better? Happy kids AND happy parents. Everybody is a winner when you chose your children over “being right”. No matter what transpired in the marriage, you share the most important thing in the universe. Make it about the kids’ well being. Put them first above your conflict. Work together even if it’s challenging. Celebrate all that you do have and be grateful for it all.
