My husband did. I left him Monday - I'm scared but I'll live.
It's like the rose tinted glassed have finally come off. He controlled me. He took all my confidence from me (or tried to) and isolated me from people. Always putting me down just so I wouldn't have the confidence to leave him, or upset him - because no one else would want me anyway right? WRONG! Of course others will want me, he hasn't destroyed me that much no matter how he tried. I'm young, I'm a nice person, I can be fun to be around.... I'll move on.
No one has the right to make others feel less than they are worth! NO ONE! Anyone who does this is trying to break you to gain some kind of control over you - and if you really are that worthless then why are they so bothered about controlling you so much??
