Whilst I think the way she left, not letting me know how unhappy she was. Wasn't my fault. I do and have always accepted it takes two to make things work. 12 months later, I had my priorities wrong.
I love messing with computers, it's my hobby turned into my Job.
I think somehow for some reason I let this become my focus. Instead, I should have spent time with her and our Son. I think I was selfish in that, I would think about what I wanted to do in any spare time first, rather than what we should be doing in any spare time that I had. I think this could have gone a long way to prevent the split.
I'm not ready for any new relationship at the moment, if ever. I need time to reflect, these blog posts are just that, me reflecting. Working through the anger, pain, disappointment and taking responsibility for the part I played which resulted in us splitting up.
The conclusion for the moment is I'm better off on my own and being the best Dad that I can possibly be to my Son.
