If you really wanna get this over with.. just bring those kids back to your place..( hope you're able to keep them..) ask your ex to work properly and earn so as to make the kids feel good about his dad.
Secondly.. i don't think you should just feel bad and no respect for yourself.. you gave tour vest shot.. but not now! And now that you're in guilt.. you may need to get back to him.. coz 8 years is a big big time. You can't afford any new relationship as of now.. you won't have to demean yourself.. but.. for kids sake.. hang in there.. You are equally responsible for them too.. right!
May God be with both'f you!
Hope this helps
