Tomorrow is the anniversary of my ex bf's sons death. He was shot 4 years ago, and I know that my ex will try to contact me. It is not a good relationship - but I still feel for him due to his loss. My question, and I really don't mean to offend anyone, is that while his son was alive he wanted no part of him. Didn't return his phone calls, kicked him out of his house and flatly refused to speak with him. Ever since his death it is like none of that mattered. His son was perfect. I have no children of my own so really can't count on my own judgement - is this a normal reaction? Is it guilt that he is feeling? Should I be there to support him when he needs me, even though it would probably not be in my own best interest? Any advice would be appreciated.
