It must be scary to talk about this I would imagine? .. Do you think you could look up if there are any abuse hotlines you could call? I know there are things like that here, but Idk about how it is where you live. Maybe talking to someone who understands where you are at could help some. Keep writing here too, though. .. I think you need to continue to listen to yourself, and what you need to do. To stay in a relationship that is hurting you - because you do not want to hurt him - does not seem fair to me.. But you have to decide what is best for you at the moment. I just think you deserve to be happy. And to be respected and cared for. And it does not seem like you get that from him... Thinking of you.. Proud of you for writing about this all.. (((((((((hugs)))))))

thanks mitza ((((((((hugs)))))))) back. idk about a particular hotline for specific types of abuse. i know there are abuse hotlines though but i think those are for ppl whose partners are physically abusing them. and they can call a hotline and get taken to a secret safehouse if need be. idk of any therapy groups for this or not. posting here helps and i write in my journal sometimes. i have a friend who has been there with her husband and i email her but she is raising a family, working, and going to school so she just doesn't have time to talk. i used to go to church with her but i have stopped going to church. so i do what i can to create little victories of my own. he doesn't like it i can tell. he gets suspicious when i act like this and thinks that i am "seeing someone" which i think is hilarious but w/e. he is entitled to think his own thoughts and i cannot stop him. i have been sleeping in the living room a lot and not sitting in the bedroom watching tv with him at night if i don't like what he is watching. i am just being my own person and if he can't handle that then he is shit out of luck i love him with all my heart but i am through being his whipping post and i know that i cannot change him that change comes from within and that he doesn't want to change b/c he refuses to see that anything is wrong to begin with. so i will just have to be patient and wait and keep myself safe until then. but he knows if he ever hits me again it is over for good.

I am glad to hear that you are trying to set boundaries. You are so brave for doing so. I can only imagine how hard it must be, and scary.. (((((((((hugs))))))))))
I do think that you could call those hotlines, though. Even if he might not have abused you physically (though you spoke about some occations?), I am sure that they know how to deal with emotional abuse too... I can not describe how proud I am of you for dealing with this, trying to change stuff, writing, contacting your friend. Keep doing so. You are worth so much, and you deserve to be treated better than this.

Lots of love,
M

Default do not appease!!!

I'm a recovering abuser, I've been helping other men control their anger and move past their violence for a long time and I'm telling you there is no way that the abuse will end unless you call the police and get him help. If you don't want to do that then you need to leave. All women that think you're being abused please click on this link and realize that the cycle never stops unless you MAKE it stop!
