Don't like boyfriend after birth

Tyesha - posted on 04/18/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I had my son 7 weeks ago, but still don't like his father. Every since I was pregnant I was irritated by everything he did and I thought it would end after I gave birth, but I still don't like him. I try to convince myself its only hormones. I'm afraid though that i'll never get back to liking him. any advice.

I believe that first and foremost that you need to do something that will help you. That is to pray for God's grace to help you forgive your boyfriend. It took two people in order for you to become pregnant. You and your boyfriend. While hormones may be at work, you have to make a choice to forgive. You will be helping yourself, your boyfriend, and importantly, the father of your baby. It is very important for the parents of children to at least respect each other, and even if they are not in love, the baby needs to grow up feeling secure and knowing that he/she is loved by both parents, and that you both want the very best for your child. God will help heal the bad feelings you have if you open your heart to him. You will have peace of mind by knowing you did the right thing. God will be pleased because you made the right choice to forgive, and his peace will be with you. Many people find themselves in situations every day where they have a choice to either choose bitterness and hatred or forgive someone in their family. We can't always choose our family members, and we can't control them, but we can be pacemakers and be at peace.
