Sometimes I feel like I’ve failed as a dad.
When their mother and I got divorced, they were young, like 5 and 3. Now I’m not a deadbeat dad by any means. I’m very active in their lives. But I’m always going to feel that no matter how much I’m in their lives, that I’ve failed them by not being in their lives more. I feel like I’ve missed out on so much and deprived them of having a full-time dad around.
That’s something I’ll have to live with the rest of my life.
