I Have Lost Me

It was my fault. I let myself live my life around my husband's. Around his timing. His plans. His needs and wants. It used to work because I always managed to squeeze some time for me. But that all went away after my daughter came along. I love her to bits and have  not regrets having her. But, I wish her father was someone else. Someone who isn't selfish and only think of his needs and wants and forgets I am also human with my own needs and wants. I have buried me under a pile of obligations, childcare, chores, etc...

Oh, how I can identify. I am at the same place. Add all of what you described to living with a rude teenager that constantly puts you in no-win situations and you have me. I am self-employed, but micromanaged to the Nth degree at home. Somewhere along the way I gave my husband and son the message that it's OK to be rude and dismissive to me. I've tried very hard for so long and I think I am done trying. With every episode I am one foot closer to the door.

Understand! Hang in there.
