That sums it up well. No matter how bad things look or are will you still be there? Stop the child's play and be a real adult if you want to have something real. If you want to be recognized and respected as an adult defend what you want and go for him
Oh how I love this. Girls were always extremely mean to me growing up. Now I almost cry every time my son steps onto his bus. I'm terrified for my children to have to endure mean people. And I hope they never have to. Be nice! Children learn by example.
