How to get royally F*@ked up.. and not for the reasons you think.
So this is how you f*** up your individuality, purpose and will to survive. I will even break down how to avoid this into three easy steps towards the end.
As I sit here on a Wednesday night (briefly taking a break from the barren waste that is my working life and what i used to call my business) I ponder how it went so wrong.. I have 2 sons the eldest of which I adore. He is smart, funny and full of character we have an ace relationship and I am truly glad to have him.
The second has done nothing but ruin my life since the moment he was conceived shattered my marriage, ruined my business, eviscerated my recovering social life and set fire to my wallet (To be fair to him the last one is a metaphor he can't use matches yet) . A mistake that should have been treated as such. As a bit of background I have been married for 6 years our eldest is nearly 4 and our youngest is 9 months. My Business was in it's early stages when I found out he was due and where I thought we would be able to discuss any "Mistakes" that occurred and have an adult conversation about it. But no. I was told flatly we are having him and thats it. For those of you that know the UK and our Family courts you will know that at this point I had the choice. The choice of staying married with an extra child I didn't want Or get divorced lose contact with my son and get bent over by a Judge wielding the giant d**** of financial robbery and no Vaseline.
I was heavily disappointed in my partners theft of my trust, freedom and reproductive rights. However this is 2016 I am basically a walking wallet with occasional rampant rabbit function iv'e made my piece with that.
Anyway back to the problem. My wife went into serious pre-natal depression... fun. Lost clients as I was having a ridiculous amount of family time off (Coincidently my wife has not worked since about a year into our marriage.) then he arrived. The theft of my sleep money and life. Social life: Gone. Sleep: You try sleeping with a constant "eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh" going on with the occasional burst of "WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH". Work: well the competition began wiping the floor with me as the sleep deprivation kicked in and the phone calls of "He Just won't STOP" kept rolling in. Money: Guess....
And on to the confession part of this and my three easy steps of how not to f*** up and my advice if you find yourself in the early part of this situation.
Step 1: Make sure everybody in a relationship is crystal f****** clear on what happens in the event of unwanted pregnancy
Step 2: Have a stash of money she doesn't know about. Even if your finances are separate have a super separate super secret account with all your spare cash in.
Step 3: If you have the option don't marry ..... everyone has more rights that way. The ring also does something to women....
The Confession. If I could give my second son away tomorrow he would be packed tonight.....
