thank you so much for all of your comments on my posts about my relationship. unfortunately, i really had to hit my bottom with D before i was ready to leave. things have stayed bad. it’s to the point where if i try to tell him something that’s bothering me, he goes out of his way not to do any thing to improve it. and tells me i’m trying to emotionally control him by telling him how i feel. his temper has shown it’s ugly head way too many times. every time i try to have a heart to heart with him. he has been witholding affection simply because i ask for a little more of it. it’s gotten to the point where he hardly ever gives me any hugs or kisses, simply to show me “i can’t control him” so i am leaving today. last night he came to bed after playing video games all night and giving me zero attention. i said “come here you big lug” in a playful voice. he didn’t budge. it’s been like that for about 3 weeks. i also had another epiphony the other day. i was watching an Alicia Keys video and it showed a married couple eating dinner with their child and the husband was yelling at the wife while the little boy watched uncomfortably. then the man throws his dinner plate across the room and storms off. i started crying and i thought, oh my God. that’s going to be us if i stay with him. so i’m gone. and i have NO doubts. you ladies really helped me realize how bad things are long before i would have on my own! thank you so much.

Good for you. It takes a lot of strength to walk away but I’m sure you’ll be much happier in your life having made this decision.

Good for you! You deserve someone who cares and who gives you affection freely without you having to remind him.

That’s one of the hardest decisions to make. Like everyone said, it takes someone with a lot of strength and a good head on their shoulders to pick up and leave a tough relationship. I’m so sorry things have come to this. But everyone deserves to be with someone who wants, loves, and respects them as much as they do. It’s not a one way street. Happiness is priceless. And you deserve happiness. Hope things start to look up soon.

I am so glad to hear that you have decided to put yourself first!! This was obviously a hard decision for you to make, and although other bees have told you to leave him in the past, I’m glad you came to the realization on your own. You deserve to be in a fully functioning relationship with someone who loves you and can show it, and I don’t see that happening with your current partner. So so so happy for you!

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: the only reason i haven’t done it yet is because he’s still sleeping
