To encourage you to keep going.

Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough. Take your stand, speak up and refuse to let others hurt you. Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them. You don’t have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgments. Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be. Or let them walk away if they choose. They can’t harm you either way; it’s their understanding that is faulty, not yours.

    I’m living with someone who has made me feel worthless for almost 4 years. All I wanted was for him to be proud of me, love me. To keep his promises. Now I haven’t the courage or resources to leave him. What to do? I can’t stand my heart hurting like it does. I used to be happy, used to laugh all the time, make others laugh. Now I just cry everyday.

      Awe Tammy, you have to reach out to friends or family or woman support groups/refuge. If you can’t do any of these please speak to your doctor and see if they can offer any help and advice or point you in the right direction of help. Believe in yourself. ? YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK AND YOU CAN LEAVE THIS SITUATION ?
      I believe in you.

      ✨ Peace light and love ✨

    You are the one in control of your own happiness talk about how unhappy you are and what you need and if your needs are not met then as much as you love a person you may need to let them go so as to be happier and grow. I myself am struggling after an 11 year relationship with making that same decision. I know it is not easy..in fact one of the hardest things i am experiencing at the moment. If your significant other cannot respect your feelings and make a conscious effort to change then how long do you fight for it?

    I left a very negative relationship of 15 years. Later I found a positive loving relationship. But in the process of wanting so much to be a part of a family that I thought was caring, loving, and accepting, I became the second black sheep in this family as was the positive one I planned to spend my life with. Its truly sad to think that human beings can put someones life aside for the sake of a cruel game seeking a victim to badger and pressure, until you stand up and speak up. Its like a gossip columnist of blind radical secrecy, a sad way of living life an even sadder way of building a family togetherness an trying to embrace something that has been so dysfunctional for so long . Its caused me to let go of anything other than the one I found love and acceptance with. I have been hurt by some of the cruelest behaviors and the sad part is they just hide it well. It certainly changed me as I have been very tired at times! I could list everything and as unbelievable as it would sound, I also know what good would it do? absolutely nothing, just ad fuel to their need to keep that fire blazing behind the scenes. I believe this very much so “Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them”. I have to or I will die inside…. I have been letting it go and letting god handle it. I never stop practicing relaxation when I have quiet time, I am so grateful for having one relationship in my life that is of love and respect, and I have the love of my children . I always have to regenerate my spirit energy every time I am around negative living people, but I have learned more positive from healthy living as I continue to build on my confidence and self love.

    I know Anna! Yesterday was my 32 yr anniversary and I can’t tell you how many times I have debated on leaving…then things get better…then not. Our marriage has had so many days/wks of not talking or my husband fighting over stupid things. He was verbally abusive in the beginning of our marriage but it took me yrs to realize that’s what it was. He is not physical and not a bad person. He is just miserable, sarcastic and looks for the negative in everything and likes to fight with me about anything and everything. He was never one to communicate. On the one hand I feel like life is short and I should leave and be happy. I have been telling him for years how I feel. He doesn’t get it! On the other hand, I know marriage has it’s ups and downs and I recently heard someone say you have to take the good with the bad in your spouse, etc. My kids are grown…there is nothing holding me back except that I do love him. I just don’t love the way he talks to me…and I could use a hug, support, etc. every once in a while. What to do?

    Tammy, I lived the same way for more than 2 years. I was always laughing, until he took that away too. Go to a battered women’s shelter if you need to get out and they will help you find housing etc. I finally left my guy in March, now it is May. I made the best move I could make. I live with a roommate here…but at least I am living!!! You can do it!!! You are NOT alone!
