Thanks Nan for your reply. I have been looking at signs of emotional abuse. What I can’t seem to get my head round, is sometimes we get on well, and we enjoy each others company. Last night I gave him a letter saying about why I feel the way I do. And he doesn’t accept it was ever “that bad”. So now I am questioning if I have over exaggerated things. You see, I was so young when we got together I don;t really have an idea about what is normal and not in a loving relationship. Unfortunately my mother is still in a similar relationship with my father so I guess its learnt behaviour in a way too, that I tolerate it.
For the sake of the boys though, I know I have to break the cycle. But why does it feel like I am the one in the wrong?
