Moving out of my boyfriends house as I cant handle living unhappy and him saying mean things to me and once to my son. My son is only 10. I cant handle the fact he will buy beer almost everyday even if we need things for the house. I get my own money (that I pay most of the stuff we need here food etc, plus pay half of the bills) that will not be around forever, spousal support but I am working. Not alot but when I do I make 9 a hr. I am going to look at a one bedroom apartment for 450.00 a month everything included. I Am looking at this house cause It something I think i can afford. Will get another job if need be. I posted before about my boyfriend but always delete them so he dont see them. You all told me to leave, well I am getting there. Thanks for all your advice. Just pray I can do this on my own. Never really had to be on my own and bring in my own money. Thanks I CAN DO THIS FOR ME AND MY SON WE DESERVE BETTER!!!!!!

  • I think you are doing the right thing. I also think that you may be surprised to find how good you will feel about yourself after you have made the move. Often, it is far better to be alone and on one's own than to settle for just anyone and/or anything. I wish you the best.
