He doesn't deserve to say sorry. Block him and everyone else that he is using to contact you . He leaves letters make copy give it to police, screen shot stuff off facebook give copy to police...

But in now way shape or form should you ever reply to him. He will stop trying to hound you in time, change your number don't give it out till its over.

I wouldn't talk to anyone that has anything to do with him and I would tell them what he did will not be tolerated period, please don't contact me or my family.

There is power in taking back control use it.

Have great trip.

Why you gotta be so mean?

I am just astounded by the lack of empathy and the sheer meanness of some of the comments. This woman had the strength to come on here and tell people about her abuser. She was looking for a little support and advice. If you could not offer either one then why comment at all? She could be your friend, your sister, your mother or your neighbor. How can people be so small that they cannot imagine how it feels to be a victim? I've learned a few things and one of them is you don't give a man like that the power to continue to harm you or your children. She took the kids on a preplanned cruise and trip to Disney which is exactly what she should do. To stay home lets this dirtbag win and teaches the kids to be afraid and that might makes right. It took courage to come on here and admit what he did and it took guts to carry on as if he did not do it. If don't have something nice to say the please say nothing at all.

To the OP, I'm not sure if you will see this before you get back but I hope you and your kids have a wonderful trip. I'm sorry that you are going through this but it will make you stronger. Trust me on this. You will glad you did not let this monster take this trip and the memories you will make away from you and your kids.
You already got a lot of money saving ideas for meals. You will be fine on $600 with small kids. Coco Key where you are staying had a free breakfast when we stayed there as well as free water park and minigolf. If you have a kitchen get some food at shops like fruit,cheese,cereal and milk. I'm assuming you will have a rental car as it is off site. Try Sweet Tomatoes over at Crossroads. It is a buffet but all fresh fruit/veg, salads, baked potatoes, pizza, pasta,soups and desserts and drinks and it is cheap. I think it was $12 for me and my daughter in June. Have a terrific time.
Stay strong.

Looks like the mods removed the comments from the user who said she deserved it, very happy to see that.

I don't want to lose all of that money when I could actually be out showing my kids a good time. If I just sit home what would that accomplish? Than my kids would be extremely disappointed. I stayed at a motel the days after the assault because I was afraid he'd get some of his friends/family to come and assault me for calling the police on him. He can't break into my apartment. I have deadbolt locks and all of my windows have bars on them . In highrise buildings if you have children the windows have to have bars on them . I'm not so worried now because the detective dropped a warrant to arrest him and he said they're going to find him as soon as possible.
To answer the bolded. if you stay home he wins... he succeeds in disrupting your life more than he already has. I have never been in your situation but I feel for you. Your kids need this trip but so do you. You need it to remember that there is still fun to be had in the world. Go and enjoy the time with your kids.

Worth repeating, especially if they specifically acknowledge guilt.

I just listened to the podcast and heard about this thread. I had to check it out. I am heart broken for you that this happened.

No woman deserves this. Please love on your children for us.

I hope you went and had a great vacation.
