I think your DH has failed you by being a using dick.
What about him? Was he going to make changes for you? Or was he expecting you to make all the changes?
I can't remember your story.
But ending the relationship is not a failure if the relationship wasn't right for you. In that case it's actually a victory.
I think you are on your path to a better life!
They have a toddler son together, but her bf is still legally married to the mother of his 13-year-old daughter. SD had been living with OP and BF, but now wants to live with mom. BF refuses to file for divorce. I think that's pretty much the story.
Quoting whatIknownow: I can't remember your story. But ending the relationship is not a failure if the relationship wasn't right for you. In that case it's actually a victory.
You have failed nothing. Your SO has failed you by leading you on in believing that he has separated himself from his wife and was fully committed to you and your relationship with him and your child together.
I'm sorry that you have to go through this. I really, truly, deeply am but now it's time to pick up the pieces and get things together for your young son.
I still think that you should consider therapy. At least for a little while.
You really need to work on your self esteem and building up your feelings of self-worth.
