I am having issues, my partner of just over two years, is being very unsupportive which is really upsetting. I am trying to organise a business plan, get grants and many other things for him to have the ability to start up his own business, but when it comes to me attempting to firstly study and also in the side start a home business in cakes and cupcakes, he can only be negative. I had a car accident nearly 3 years ago and I’ve had a bad back from it. So he does do a lot of things for me and now his son. So for me to do something with my life is just a huge deal for me as I didn’t think I could ever work fulltime again and was stuck, now setting up something I just love it would be nice to have the support. He belittles my idea’s although I have always had believed in him, tbh I’m using money I will get because of the accident to invest in a business for him and I get treated like shit anyway. He just doesn’t care about me trying to do anything which will finally be my way to make a contribution to our family other than relying on centrelink!! Ahhh! I don’t know what to do, I love him but this is just seeming one step too much! I lack very little support in my life and he used to be the main support, I feel like whenever he doesn’t support something I give up trying as I feel useless and if the person I love doesn’t support me, well what would that make of me? It would just make my life harder and unbearable, I’m considering just giving up in my dream, I don’t know how I could do it without his support, but I feel like maybe I should give up on his as well although his dad would help him so either way I feel like the loser that his whole family makes me out to be and I will never be good enough. So why try, right?!
