I was with my husband for over 20 years.... 20 miserable years... I was so set on having a good family life, having a nice home for our kids, and letting them have thier mom and dad together, I put up with my selfish, self-loving husband....
I have been cheated on, talked down to, I could never even pick out anything for myself ( from clothes to wall colors) .. I always felt like I had to prove myself to him and even when I got to the best i could be, it still wasnt good enough.
I always planned ( since my kids were toddlers) that as soon as they were grown i was leaving him. Now i have a great job, my own house, my own vehicle... and next month I will be officially divorced... i feel so good and so free .. except when it comes to my kids.. My youngest is 17 - she will be 18 next month ( and she already graduated high school) ..i also have an almost 19 year old and almost 20 year old ( I was very fertile back then lol)...
My youngest daughter is so upset, she has always been a daddys girl and it doesnt help that he makes it clear that I left him ( meaning it is my fault) ... she wont talk to me, refuses to come to my new house and that kills me .. my oldest daughter understands because she has said she knows how her dad treated me and my son is upset but he also understands... I just feel badly, and I dont know what to do...
