I know that there isn't an exact science to figure out when
I know that there isn't an exact science to figure out when it is time to leave, but is anyone willing to share their experience when it clicked that your marriage just wasn't working out?
There is still very much a part of me that still loves my husband, but there is also a large part of me that is really starting to resent him. Even when I'm not thinking emotionally. Any advice?
It never clicked for me until he told me he wasn't happy, he wanted me to leave and he wanted a divorce. I considered suicide. If it had not been for my two kitties and puppy dog I would have. I knew that no one could care for them and love them the way I can so I didn't do it. It has been two years now, I am a little bit better but if you asked me am I more afraid of being alone or being hurt I am more afraid of being hurt so I am not entertaining the thought of another relationship, EVER.
@Jenn4473 The lying is hard to handle all on its own- let alone with infidelity. There is a lot of lying that goes on with drug use too. He's been clean for about a month now, but still doesn't get why I don't trust him and that he will have to work on rebuilding that trust. Honestly, I am not sure if I will ever really trust him again. I hate that feeling. Broken trust is so lonely.
@MissJennifer I am so glad you had those sweet kittens and puppy to be there for you. My dog (and now my baby) have saved me from giving up so many times. When I look in their faces, like you said, I know that no one can love them like I do- and it gives me purpose again.
I agree. I think being hurt again is more upsetting than being alone. Somedays I just wish I were alone.
