Just ended my 5 year relationship/engagement
After a 5 year relationship, 3 of those years engaged, I finally ended my unhealthy relationship. The hard thing is when it wasn’t his kids weekend we were ok, so what I thought but the arguing got worse, and my daughter that’s 10 took notice. She has had a lot of depression lately. Not just blue feelings but a lot of depression. I found out after talking to her about her feeling of is splitting she was so happy to have him and the kids out of our lives! He has 4 other kids and refuses to give them any accountability or structure, and gets mad if I have to leave him alone because he’s overwelmed with them. My daughter has lost respect for him over the years from his jealousy with her Dad, his poutiness when things don’t go his way, and always fighting with me. It was a hard thing to do because I love him, and he loves me, but I am ill with 4 auto immunes and his kids were out of control. We went to counseling, but had a difficult time applying the concepts during heated times. I am day 1 of him gone with swollen eyes from crying. I know I did the right thing for my daughter. I’m strong and will not waiver back to being with him or any relationship until my child is out of high school! Blended families are impossible at least for me and my daughter. So my focus is on her, and when I feel sad and lonely I just journal all the unhealthiness I put my daughter through and what the relationship was and warning signs, and I thank God for the strength to end the engagement before I married him. Heart break is hard though, but I know each day gets better!
