Living with a stone around your neck? Drop it!



I realize now that he is a stone around my neck.

He does not love me, he hates me and loves the game.

He abandoned me a long time ago.

He is handsome, well educated, has a good sense of humor and never gets mad unless it is to sabotage something or as a reason to just give up and not do something that I want done.

He actually volunteered to go to counseling and made the appointment. I was impressed. I took leave from work and showed up but he didn't.
I give up, I am shattered, I am done, I have accommodated his behaviors and he just raises the bar.

It isn't me, it is him.

I can't fix him, I can't make him understand what he is doing to hurt me, so he must love to hurt me... and he is unable to stop.

I can not stay just to be rejected day after day. I am planning my get away.

One son just got married and one is going off to college.

In addition to my daytime career, I have taken on a college teaching position several nights a week and am actively looking for a new home.

  1. Just received this short note, from Maria. She was telling me the reason for leaving this site:
    “I asked my husband to leave finally after 11 years of horror and now I’m in a normal relationship with a regular, normal man! Just that. Now I don’t have to be studying every move or word he did or said, etc Now I am just living!”
    Don’t you think it is great? she was able to throw the stone away!
