But I can't get myself to do it. Wtf is wrong with me?


he is emotionally abusive towards me and lately, towards one of our sons who is 5. That hurts me a million times more than the emotional abuse towards myself. we took the kids to the paved park trails today to ride their bikes (just took the training wheels off for the boys) and I had to continuously tell my husband to stop treating our son like that. "like that" being  when he fell off the bike, went into the grass, etc. "what are you retarted? you fucking idiot. You stupid?" "he can't help he's a retard" "he sucks" within earshot of him. im crying for my son right now for how that makes him feel. i tried reasoning with my husband that saying that stuff to him - he is going to be a failure in life and end up hating himself and his dad. it's true. thats what emotional abuse does to a child. im quite educated and I AM fully aware. it's not like i DONT know the consequences of this continued treatment. i don't know what to do, how to leave, where to go, i feel like im too weak of a person to do it. I know he will make my life a living hell so long as i live if i do leave him. NO ONE knows the truth.

Noohing is wrong with you. Leaving is easier said than done.

Nothing wrong with you, it's just hard to leave.

Depends on WHY you want to leave. Maybe part of you knows its a shitty excuse or you still have hope of working things out. Maybe try counseling :]

Afraid of the unknown.  It's scary.
