How many really think about leaving???
I've read a lot of blogs lately. They are all different with one very common thread. It seems most of us are so fed up we mention leaving quite often. Like myself, I mention leaving because I'm so terribly unhappy I would like a means to an end. Will I ever get the courage to leave? Probably not. Will I harp and complain about my step kids?? Most definately.
What holds us here?? Do we all love our SOs that much more than we hate our SKs??? My SO is RESPONSIBLE for how his kids turned out... that right there is a factor in leaving alone!!!
I stay here out of guilt. Knowing that SO will be stuck selling the house and renting again and using credit (which is almost maxxed out now) to pay his bills. Since I really actually do love SO, I don't wish bad things on him. So guilt it is. I live in a life I don't like or want because someone else will suffer tremendously if I leave.
Sometimes I pray for a huge blowout fight so he can be the one to end it and I will be guilt free!!!
How about you??? Why do you stay??
