I have felt this way for a while now,and I imagine what it would be like to have someone who truly loves me,someone who would hold me and help me feel loved. Why do I feel so sad when I make love to my husband,why do I cry? I see the way other men caress their wife and hold them tight,and say how beautiful they are,I don't get that with my husband,it truly hurts me. I'm the stupid wife who doesn't know how to raise the kids everything is my fault I'm the reason why my kids are failing school and getting suspended. The man I married is very bitter and mean and makes me feel worthless. My children hate their own father and I can't blame them he's never been a father that they need. His days are spent at work or home in front of the tv and computer,he doesn't know his own children and I doubt he ever will. I'm naive enough to believe that things could change,that we could make things better. I should've known to run the other way the day we got married 15 years ago when all I felt was sadness and despair,that in itself was my heart warning me and now look what I've done. I don't think I will ever know to love or be loved by any man. Going tomorrow to apply for housing,not sure how I will ever get by on 9.25 an hour and I'm in debt over my head with medical bills. I'm truly scared and can't decide on if I want to cry or scream out.

Keep reminding yourself that you are deserving of the same kind of love you can give. He doesn't deserve you or the kids. You don't make love to him, you oblige him. It sounds like you have emotionally already left the relationship. Time to let your body catch up with your emotions. Learn to love yourself again and remember that you are worthy of receiving the kind of love you give to others. Do not accept anyone that isn't willing to give you what you give them.
