I’m posting anonymously because I’m ashamed of this. I let him control me for so long. I am a strong, independent woman and have been my entire life, I’ve never needed someone to do anything for me.. Yet, I let him control me because I love the idiot. I wish I could turn these feelings off

  • I agree with mom94215. You do need to try and sort this out for yours and your kids sake or move on. Hugs


  • You need to work out what to do, leaving is hard but you will move on. You will meet a great guy one day and when you really fall in love, you will see how much better your life is. You deserve to be treated like a queen. I went through hard times with someone that i thought i loved but now that i have a real man, i see what it truly means to be loved. You deserve the best sweetie! You have to show your children what a good relationship is supposed to be like. Any woman from any background can still get into toxic relationships. It just means that you love deeply, not that you are stupid or worthless. I think that because he is your child’s father that you should go to counselling to address the issues. You need to sort this out with him or move on. It is so hard but you are not happy now so can you imagine another year ,5, 10 years of feeling the same way that you are now?


  • I think a lot of people make this mistake.


  • I hope you find yourself out of this negative situation sooner rather than later. You can still love someone without having to live with them or be control by them etc. Good Luck.
