Note from the Pissed Off Parent:

Dear friends and fellow advocates,

It is with a mix of emotions (not really as this has been coming a long time) that I write this to inform you of my decision to step away from the Equal Shared Parenting movement. After much contemplation and soul-searching, I have come to the realization that it is time for me to embark on a new path and explore different avenues of helping people. Although this decision was not easy, I just can’t stand what I see in apathy, etc. and simply cant continue to beat my head against the wall. 

First and foremost, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to some of the dedicated advocates. The passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment that you have displayed throughout our shared journey have been truly inspiring. Together, we have strived to promote equality, justice, and the well-being of children within the realm of parenting. Unfortunately, from where I sit our collective efforts have gone largely unnoticed as evidenced by the video. Hell, some of you are responsible for me making the decision…but not worth the trouble of talking about it. 

A few of us have tirelessly advocated for reforms in family law, emphasizing the importance of equal involvement of both parents in the lives of their children. Our failed campaigns,  failed rallies, and failed initiatives have shown me how the majority of people just don’t care, something obviously known and shown in our legislators, judges, etc.

Hopefully, someone else will come along and change the hearts and minds to carry this message forward.

The friendships and camaraderie I have experienced with some within this movement are invaluable, and I will forever be grateful for the lessons learned, the knowledge shared, and the support received. Some of your passions and dedication have left an indelible mark on me, and I carry the spirit of our shared cause within me as I find a cause that I can actually make a change in.

The fight for equal shared parenting is far from over and hopefully one day people will decide to band together and fight for these rights. 

Thank you once again for the privilege of working alongside you all. I remain inspired by some of the advocate’s unwavering commitment, and I eagerly anticipate witnessing the progress you will make in the future.
