Instead of being full of anger and aggression, this man’s online rant about his ex-wife sums things up perfectly.
Billy Flynn Gadbois from Boston described how he surprised his ex wife on her birthday, with flowers and cards from his children and posted his encounter to Facebook.
The whole thing was so touching, Facebook users were all over it, sending his sweet message viral.
He introduced his post with:
Per usual, someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time. This annoys me So ima break it down for you all.
He then continued to brilliantly explain why he does all the lovely things, he apparently still does after his divorce.
It’s my ex-wife’s birthday today so I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give her and helped them make her breakfast.
I’m raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships.
I think even more so in my case because we are divorced. So if you aren’t modelling good relationship behaviour for your kids, get your sh*t together.
Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you.
Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever.
This sentiment is so needed right now and good on him for raising his sons with this powerful message in mind.
What an absolute legend.
