Anger with the ex

After my son was born, his father basically turned his back to me. There were tons of issues with mistrust and deceit. When I needed him most he wasn't there. He's a very nasty person with an enormous temper and is verbally abusive. It's been 4 months that we've been separated and I'm still so emotional, ANGRY, and sad. I know there's light at the end of the tunnel but this is really difficult. My son turns 1 tomorrow and I dread seeing him and his family at the party I'm throwing. I know it's about my son and not me or him or our differences. The hurt surfaces again when I see him....I wish it would go away. Can anyone suggest coping mechanisms?

I suppose the best advice is to go into the event with the attitude of being the bigger person and that this day is about your child. You are going to have to co-parent with him for many years.
