About two months ago I broke up with my long term girlfriend leaving behind her two kids and my own children. I was kind of forced out after years of not really getting on with my girlfriend (at the time) and struggling to connect to her daughters (who are now 15 and 16 years old and hate me.) To live in a house in which more than half the household did not even want me to be at was not easy and despite the fact I tried to hold on as long as I could (for my own children) the arguements became more frequent and intense and I often felt outnumbered and a mere inconvenience to the people I lived with (excluding my own kids obviously.)
I am not the best person to live with I’m messy, I leave things lying around, I wait until there is a mess before I tidy up and I smoke weed (thats cool if somebody else in the house does but some people are offended by habits like that and that is up to them.)
I have now lived alone since April and I miss not seeing my kids everyday. But there are many positives about living alone; I spend less time with my kids nowadays but I feel it is better quality time. I don’t drive and I lived in the middle of nowhere so we were often stuck in the house now I live closer to a town with parks, play areas and things for the children to do, without being forced to travel an hour and half first.
Another big positive is I am now free to live by my own rules and do my own thing. If I want to stay up late blogging what I believe to be important shit (sometimes) on my website and Steemit I am free to do so. If I don’t get up until midday thats cool too.
I also owe Steemit for my new found freedom because Steemit has actually paid me more in (nearly) 12 months than what YouTube have in three years and paying me in cryptocurrency its better than money.. So thank you Steemit, to my Steemit followers and to the thousands of people signed up to my website on to mention all my YouTube subscribers.
