Scared Cat

All my life I have had abandonment issues starting with my parents. I have outgrown my current marraige and troubled relationship but fear of being alone keeps me trapped. I want out so bad I can taste it. However my mind takes over and I think who will take care of me. I know I will have to be the one to take care of myself but I am still desperately trapped. My children are almost fully grown but still I am so very frightened I do nothing but wish for a way out.

If you aren't happy, it's not fair to yourself, or your husband that you stay in that relationship. Yes, change is scary, but at the same time, it can be exciting if you let it. Figure out if you really want out, or if you just want your husband to be more loving and caring towards you. Then go from there.

If you truly want out, find a way if you can. I wish the best for you.
