Does it sound like I'm in an abusive relationship? UPDATED Post 162 - Page 9

post #161 of 165


What Stormbride said.

Please consider leaving before the end of the month. Call your local DV shelter and let them know what your situation is.

It takes so much strength to do what you are doing. Do be careful who you share your story with IRL. The last thing you need is judgement. You are trying to do what you feel is best for yourself and your DS, even for your husband. By leaving you can keep yourself and DS safe, as well as hope that your husband is able to find help and a way to live a happy life that he doesn't have, that none of you have, right now.

Well, I have officialy moved out. All my stuff is in storage and I am staying at my parent's until April 15. It is going surprisingly well, I'm just really lonely and feel badly for him, he misses us but I need to do this.

I am so so very proud of you. I know how hard it is. Stay strong. It is going to be hard for awhile. It has been almost two months for me and it is still really tough sometimes. It will get better though, a little at a time.

I cannot even begin to express how proud, happy, elated, EXSTATIC I am for you. I know you dont feel this way, but honestly mama, day after day, it will get easier and easier. Now you AND your (ex?)partner can focus on bettering and healing yourselves in whatever way you can.

Stay Strong mama!!! and Love that little boy of yours to PEICES!!!!

I am so proud of you!!! What an amazing mama bear you are!! You should be proud of yourself!! Your son will be so grateful to you someday for protecting him. It's normal to be sad and feel bad but you are doing the right thing. We are here for you. Stay strong You are stopping the cycle of abuse in your family....because of you your son can have a loving family life one day...because his mother loved him enough to do the hardest thing ever.
