colourmeyellow :  Ok bee, I’ll try to be more empathetic. Maybe this relationship isn’t what you’d consider a true shit show, but is it making you happy? Your relationship should be a source of comfort, stability, and happiness in your life. Not a source of stress and anxiety. Your relationship should be your ROCK…it should be the one constant in your life that holds you steady when everything else around you is crashing down. In your case it kind of sounds like the opposite. You literally said you’re at rock bottom. Why are you at rock bottom? Because of your relationship. That’s not how it’s supposed  to work in a healthy relationship. That’s all we’re saying.

As for your family and friends’ lack of negative comments, yeah my family and friends also chose their words very carefully when they were gently trying to counsel me about my previous shit show of a relationship because they didn’t want to offend me or alienate me. Randos online aren’t going to be as gentle though. I probably would have balked at the term “shit show” too when I was still in the relationship with my ex, but looking back with a few years of perspective and now being in a wonderful marriage with a man who is 100% my rock, hell yes “shit show” was an apt term. We couldn’t communicate and we made each other unhappy. it was a shit show. The  good news is, there’s a better guy for you out there, and there’s probably someone better suited to your partner too. Your relationship shouldn’t feel like an uphill battle. I sincerely hope you find your happiness bee.

colourmeyellow :  You seem to take a lot of things at face value or for what you imagine they “should” be. What the divorce papers say proves nothing. It may just be that neither one of them wanted to air their dirty laundry. More to the point is you weren’t there and don’t really know. 

Your family and friends have no negative comments about your relationship because they are part of your real life and have seen you break up and get together multiple times already. The stupidest thing you can do is badmouth someone’s SO, especially if there’s a chance they will get back together. It’s a good way to drive away someone you care about.

Are you sure the ex-wife is the evil one?

colourmeyellow :  girl it’s hard to end a relationship no matter what the relationship was like. Even when I was miserable, it was still hard! The brain has a way of reminding you about good times and forgets about the shitty things that made you leave in the first place. We’re here if you want to vent!

colourmeyellow :  I understand that completely. Ending a relationship is brutal. But you will get through it! The future is bright.

Toxic relationships can be very addicting.  There is a constant temptation to keep trying to “fix” it, change it, make things better.  It’s an adrenaline rush, even. 

He gives you just a little bit of kindness every once in a while, just to keep you attached to him when he feels he’s losing control of you.   

I get it, been there. 

The thing is, you have to be in a relationship with a mature, emotionally healthy person to have a mature, emotionally healthy relationship.  Your SO sounds neither mature nor emotionally healthy. 

It is difficult ending a bad relationship; but you should get off the toxic merry-go-round because you deserve so much better.  You can find better once you get away from this toxic man and this toxic situation.

End it. Its that simple. No man should make a woman he loves feel like your SO has made you feel.

You are judging the ex wife as “evil” because of her behavior during the most stressful time in her life. I hope you will give equal consideration to her ex.
