When he asked me to abort and I didn’t I wouldn’t have asked him for nothing and never spoke of him ever until she was 18 or older and decided she wanted to know who he was.
I don’t care if I was homeless I wouldn’t ask him for S**T!
By the grace of god we would make it.
My first pregnancy the father asked me the same. I said no and was ready to go it alone.
He came around a few months later and we raised that baby together got married and had another baby.
I refused to have anymore kids unless I was married.
That first baby is now 22 and a college graduate and we are still raising the second a 13 year old girl.
Had he not come around he wouldn’t have had to worry about me cause I am a survivor.
I hope she didn’t do this purposely because some women do that.
I hope she at least get visitation.
I want to see what happens when his new wife decides she wants out.
These women should get together and do a reality show.
The ability to listen with empathy may be the most important attribute of interveners who succeed in gaining the trust and cooperation of parties to intractable conflicts and other disputes with high emotional content. Among its other advantages, as Burley-Allen points out, empathic listening has empowering qualities. Providing an opportunity for people to talk through their problem may clarify their thinking as well as provide a necessary emotional release. Thomas Gordon agrees that active listening facilitates problem-solving and, like Burley-Allen's primer on listening, Gordon's "Leadership Effectiveness Training" provides numerous exercises and suggestions for those seeking to strengthen their listening skills.
