    You are an astonishing writer with a partner whom
    now desires to belittle you. I have just experienced this during a 19 month relationship. I am a divorced mother of three and I have been through so much to be where I am today. This new relationship that I thought was healthy (I went to therapy to be able to have a healthy new beginning) and this crushed me! He was supportive until I began to be a tiny bit independent. He refused to congratulate me on my job yet all he asked for was for me to get one so I could contribute financially to his child support monthly payments. I am the one who has been taking care of his son at all costs and he spends more time with us because he feel more comfortable with me than his own mother! I haven’t been close enough with my own because my daughter saw right through him and thankfully she forgives me for my naive heart.
    I now will be looking for a way to manage my own household, as I realize I’ve been the handy man, maid, cook, and everything else all along during these past 19 months with him. I enjoy being useful. I’m skilled. I am worthy! I can give so much but i do not want it to always be expected of me!
    He hasn’t done anything to help around the house that he owns. It isn’t mine and he had been okay with the place for 3 years prior to me living here. He hasn’t fixed anything in that time and prob never will once I’m out.
    We have one life to live, We need to choose our paths. I don’t want to look back and wish I did things, I want to look back and say Look What I Did!”
