If You Haven’t Got Anything Nice To Say, Don’t Say Anything 

Hello, I’m back and I’ve got a few things to get of my chest in the next few blogs, so a couple of new, different blogs coming. I said in The Blog Where It All Begins to expect a pretty honest blog by me so here we go. 

I have a full time job working at a shop and at times it’s like being back at school. People gossip and spread lies like wild fire at times. People get in relationships with people they work with and that’s not always the best idea considering if you break up you still have to work with that person. I myself have been in that situation so I know what I’m talking about. It’s like when we have our Christmas party the talk of the shop the next day is who hooked up with who, who argued or who had a fight. It always happens and not just at that time of year. It’s human nature to talk about people but sometimes it just gets a bit childish and blown out of per portion. I wonder at times if some people have nothing better to talk about. Everyone of us is adults and I just think everyone should be a little more mindful about what they say. Not everyone takes things the same way and people need to realise gossip and rumours can actually have a negative impact on someone. 

I just like to keep myself to myself and only tell stuff to the people I trust which is only a few people to be honest. Like the saying goes “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything.”  

Thanks for reading. 

If You Haven’t Got Anything Nice To Say, Don’t Say Anything

Hello, this blog has been sat in my drafts  for a while now and I was unsure if I was going to post it or not but now is the time I suppose. 

Last Sunday was Fathers Day and it got me thinking about me being about what it is to be a father and about my relationship, well lack of relationship with my father. I was just a young boy when my Mother and Father got divorced. My Mam raised me pretty much on her own from then on. My father wasn’t around much after the divorce and then wasn’t around at all. I never felt close to my father and never felt like he wanted me around. He pretty much proved that when he never bothered anymore. 

The thing I don’t get is how anyone can just forget about their children and have nothing to do with them? 

No matter how bad things get in a marriage or relationship you should never just give up on your children aswell. I know it’s easier said than done and not everyone has things the same way in life, but if you’re man enough to make a child then you should be man enough to raise a child. I always said that before I had children that I would never be like my father and I will always be there for them. Becoming a dad was the best thing that has ever happened to me. The bond and love I have for my children is strong and I don’t think I could never not be in there lives. Me and my ex have been separated for over a year now for different reasons, but I have stayed true to what I have said about being in my children’s lives. It’s something that will never change no matter what has happened in the past or in the future.

It’s just a shame not all fathers think the same and make the effort. So for all the real Fathers out there keep up the good work.
