I haven't told my family and friends yet because I don't know where to go from here. My SO and I have been together a little over 5 years... I have two kids the youngest is 6 so he's pretty much been there all her life....
We've been trying to work it out and everything but it's always been a failure and it's due to communication... We have trouble expressing our issues with one another. We can talk and bs all day but when it matters it's always a fight

Today he told me he was done. Three years ago I sold my house (I was planning on moving closer to my family) and he asked me to move in because the distance would strain our relationship.. And I did. After a year of paying for storage I got rid of most of my stuff... So now I have nothing. I still love him very much but he is done. I worry how my kids will be and how I'm suppose to start all over. Everyone says kids are resilient but they have already been to hell and back with my divorce

***update: today got shitty. I haven't left because my kids have 6 weeks left of school and I have to find a place for us that will take my two dogs too- after he was gone all day yesterday and we were suppose to attend a family gathering for his family today (I assume he hasn't told them anything and I would be expected to attend) he stayed gone all morning and afternoon. As I'm in the kitchen cooking dinner (his keeps his son on Sunday nights) he is talking to his son in front of my kids about where they will be going out to dinner. It's like he's trying to hurt me now... I'm fighting back tears as I stand over the stove

I'm so sorry,but if he won't even go to counseling with you then I guess it really is over.That's sad for the kids. You try to be strong for them mama,and know that you will have happiness again,in time,and less strife in your home is a good thing.

Stay strong. Focus that anger and make the best g*damned omelette you've ever made. Or take a brisk walk outside, find a large bush and cry behind it. If you're lucky you'll be able to find a dry patch of grass to water with your tears.

I'm in a really serious place right now. Probably about to go through a divorce myself. Have to go to family court tomorrow- err today in 3 hours. The best part? He's taken my daughter and is hiding her from me and I have no one here. My family is in another state and my husband has turned all of our mutual friends against me. But something inside me is telling me that  no matter how horrible it feels right now something better will come from it. 

I send you a *stranger hug* and I hope that something makes you smile today.
