Ex with Pluto Square Sun Transit
Well, it really sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders too. I’m glad your daughter is not internalizing his actions. It still might feel like an abandonment of sorts though (for both of you)?
I only meant close, by emotional, historical factors. People tend to disdain any admonitions from those who have a much fuller picture of them.
If he is bipolar, he will have self-discover this. Those types of labels can sound sardonic to those receiving them.
Seems you and your daughter are keeping each other company. What more can one ask for, especially in times like these?
We both know he cannot be counted on. It’s worse for her, of course, because he’s her father, but this is just a continuation of behavior he’s displayed over the years.
I know throwing labels around isn’t particularly useful, and I don’t discuss my ex’s mental health issues with him since it would just set him off even more. It’s clear, however, that he has serious problems that have gotten much worse since I divorced him. It’s frustrating to watch him implode and refuse to take advantage of the help that is at him disposal, but it’s certainly not my job, or my daughter’s, to try to save him.
I'm sorry that you're going through this difficult situation, Occhineri.
During any Pluto transit, best is to hang onto basic true structures, if they're still standing.
He and you are each of you in Pluto transits. That's huge. For your - your, Occhineri - sake, I hope you take long walks, outdoors. Classical music that you find peaceful. Or yoga... you know? Very basic things that keep us (all, any of us) grounded and centered.
Ya, I hear you.
I have someone close to me with a glaring mental ordeal who is too stubborn to face it.
