My daughters are 6 and 7 and I've been away from them a total of maybe 10 days of their entire lives. I read them bedtime stories, I wrestle with them, I tickle them, I feed and bathe them and I pray with them every night. Now I'm having to move away for a job that will allow me enough money to live on my own and I will only get to see them twice a month, or whatever the standard is for divorce and I am having a hard time holding it together.
I'm in therapy, but it isn't helping. I'm afraid of the first day I sit down in my apartment after work at night and realize there's no one there. I'm not going to see or hear my girls run to the door yelling "daddy!" again.
How do you men that have children that are truly your own heart running around outside of your body cope with something like this? How did you get through it? How does it still affect you?
I suppose I know there will be nothing that any one of you can say to make the pain of that go away, but maybe there's insight out there that I haven't considered or heard that can help a little.
I would really appreciate anything here.
Edit: There are too many messages to respond to individually but I just wanted to say thank you so much for the advice and moreso, the encouragement. Y'all have done more good for me taking two minutes to type out a message than you might realize. Thank you again very, very much.
