Years of Abuse
I was in an emotionally abusive relationship. He controlled everything. He was manipulative - and lived life as a lie. He pretended to be a successful attorney all the time goofing off on the golf course and spending my money and badmouthing me to the kids. I did not realize - I trused him. He called me stupid, crazy a liar etc in front of my kids and undermined our relationship. I am trying to recover. God knows it is hard - he has screwed up the kids by trying to be the favorite parent always putting me down. THere is something really wrong with him. Even his family walks on eggshells because of his explosive temper. He is always right.
How did I get here is my question I am rebuilding my life. Hopefully the relationship with the kids is fixable. I just did not know.
