Emotional Turmoil

Unfortunately, I married into emotional abuse. I’m 45, mother of three. My oldest daughter (22) observing our country as in Operational Intelligence, middle daughter (19) is a full time college student working two jobs and very self sufficient, my son (12) is a great kid and honor roll recipient every semester. My children are from my first marriage of 18 years and he was physically abusive. This is my second marriage that has been nothing but judging upon my children and attacks of my character. He had a sexting affair 6 months into our marriage but consistently accuses me of cheating. He consistently takes facts from situations and totally twists them into fictitious accusations. He hangs his hat on me being a”poser, liar and cheater”. I’m a Registered Nurse which means my days may run a couple of hours past my shift. Ofcourse, I’m not really working, I’m cheating in his eyes. We haven’t slept in the same bed for months because he claims I’m cheating. He has pretty much emotionally divorced me but continues to text me when I have dinner with a girlfriend (yes, I’ve finally started spending time with some girlfriends from
Work) and inquires where we are and who I’m with. With all that being said, I look back and see that I’ve been wearing rose colored glasses for 5 years. I was only seeing those good things he would throw me every now and then and I retained that for hope. I e felt sorry for his insecurities and felt I needed to put more of me into the marriage. I do not have anymore to give and I’m becoming bitter! He’s a
Charming, funny, nice looking guy that everyone loves but his family knows that his previous 5 relationships were a clone of the same treatment. I am Presently working on taking myself out of the equation. I’m opting out. Staying certainly doesn’t change anything so why continue to traumatize myself. Thank you for such eye opening podcasts that have really opened my eyes to finding “me” again!

Thank you.

This podcast has shed so much light on things I know I feel, but couldn’t quite figure it out on my own. I have related to every single topic spoken on these episodes, and it makes me cry, and makes me realize so many things I could never really grasp before. I have a better understanding of emotional abuse, and I don’t feel crazy or alone anymore.
