Need Advice....3hours from my Daughter
My name is Benjamin and I am new to the site as well as being a parent. I desperately need any and all advice. I'm going through a divorce and we have a 2 year old daughter who I love with all my heart. Gabbi means the world to me and she loves her father very much as well. I have moved back to my home town to be closer to friends, family, and job opportunity. The 3 hour move has been almost a year now and I have been feeling nothing but severe anxiety and depression because of the fear I have of my daughter one day getting older and thinking I have left her behind. We spend plenty of time with one another a week out of every month, plus holidays, and other unexpected granted visits. I want to see her everyday regardless that would not be permitted even if I lived in the same location. I need to know if anyone has raised children from this distance and did it effect their relationship with their children? What do I need to know or what should I expect. I do and will do almost anything for her and I love her very much! She is always excited to come home with me and spend time with Grandma as well but I need to know that being a good father from this distance (3 hours) is going to be ok? I would appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.
