I'm not an marker, so I'll respond to you respectfully.
I don't think you need closure. I think that's a trap. You still have some residual feelings for him and things feel unfinished. You need to convince yourself that it really is over before you seek him out again to resolve this in your head and end up back with him.
He sounds like jerk. Regardless of his personal problems, he should've had enough respect for you to treat you well. He didn't and got what he deserved.
Let him go rot. You don't need that crap. Your kids don't need to see that crap. They don't need his acknowledgment. Best thing for you and your kids is probably to never have to deal with him again. Clean break.

Thank you for your respectful response. I appreciate that. There's so much more to the story but there's only so much I can write here without it turning into a novel. You're correct, there are residual feelings. After being friends with someone for 10 years and dating them for 2.5 years, that's expected. So perhaps this is why I had hoped we'd be able to talk like two adults after some time has passed just to bring some peace and closure to it. My children and I don't need a disrespectful man in our lives, henceforth, the break up. In retrospect, it was more of a mutual break up, and that's why I've questioned his social media actions. Not that it truly changes anything, but I find that odd. So I've been curious.. Thanks again Bricks195 for taking the time to read/respond.
