@deetroitwhat: They can only help by supporting me emotionally, which I hope they will do. I know they will, it will just be a big shock to them at first. They can’t help financially though.
I do agree that I should get part of what is in our mutual bank account, though I hope to acquire a fair amount of savings on my own…just in case.
I completely agree, I feel that I need to do this completely on my own. I feel confident that I can do that, I actually feel more empowered than ever even though it might take me a little while to prepare. I’m sorry about your situation, wishing the best for you. 🙁
@Future Mrs K:
thank you so much, I am working HARD to stop caring about what anyone else will think! That could be a big downfall for me, but I’m not going to let it be. I’ve always led such a quiet, simple life that it’s jusT hard for me to know that people will be talking about me. And they will definitely talk…but….that’s ok.
I am so excited to become independent and become my own person! It’s something I never got to do. I will definitely be taking a long break from perusing any kind of romantic relationship, with anyone. Thank you!
That is all so, so true. Thank you so much for the encouragement and wonderful advice!
thank you for sharing your story! I could probably stay with a family member if I choose to, I’d rather not though, at least not yet.
thank you!! 🙂
Thank you so much for your insight. I know it will be difficult and strange at first but i think that I am ready for this new journey.
@miss. eire: “what if staying is the wrong choice”
thank you for sharing this, I love it. That really made me think.
Thank you so much for your concern, advice, and encouragement! I think I answered most of your questions in my last update 🙂
I don’t feel too much pressure to contact a shelter, though I will definitely keep that in mind if I need to. I think I will be ok just biding my time and getting my things in order, but if the situationchanges I will not hesitate to contact someone for help. Thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful advice. I’m applying for jobs all over and hope that I will hear back from someone soon! I am ready to meet new people and just kind of begin anew.
thank you so much, your words meant a lot to me. You are definitely right about my doubts stemming from the way I have been treated, it is all I know.
i agree – incredible advice!
