The following article is in response to a popular message board trend about complaining about dead beat daddies and child support dependence. Feel free to reply with your reactions and watch the video too.
So what is the positive impact of letting go? The negatives were covered all right, but why not consider the positives? Before we let the negatives rule, the positives deserve a fair hearing. Let’s examine 5 positive reasons in favor of attempting to forget about your deadbeat baby daddy and inadequate child support to see those that ring true.
First, He’s proven he doesn’t want to be a part of the life of you and your child. I completely understand your rationale in thinking you had something special at one time, after all you had a baby together. I agree that that’s a rather valid objection, but please consider, if he hasn’t paid one red cent (or barely $100 a year) since the day the baby was born, he’s not interested in being a part of your lives. And moreover, you will need to consider you might be better off without him.
Second, He’s probably more interested in the next conquest than raising a child with you. The leading reason behind that is he’s too immature to want to be a parent. And also afraid of any type of real responsibility.
Third, your anger and constant nagging about his inability to be a real man keeps him running. Plus perhaps your habit of broadcasting his failures to your girlfriends and the rest of the world.!
Fourth, you are giving him control of your life every second you remain angry at him.
And Fifth, you can create a better life for you and your child when you take the focus off of him and make plans for financial security because of your own efforts.
After you have had a chance to go over the reasons, and think about them, you’ll find that a top notch case can be made in favor of forgetting about your deadbeat baby daddy and moving on with your life..
Just think about it. Perhaps you really, in all seriousness, should forget fighting tooth and nail for him to be a father and sending money to help support your child.
As soon as you examine each of the reasons and evaluate them, you will have to admit that a very compelling case can be made for starting to consider how you can forget about your deadbeat baby daddy and create drama-free life with all the trimmings.
So maybe, just maybe, you really should forget about depending on child support from a man who’s proven he doesn’t want to be responsible for taking care of his child.
That’s just my two cents worth. It’s heartbreaking to see so many single mom struggle with this issue. The bottom line is it’s time to take control of our lives and destiny.
