Hi there, old member, new profile.
I have just broken up with my partner of over 9 years, and while it was my choice and my doing, I can't help but feel like maybe I made the wrong decision.
I guess it is just the fear of the unknown, fear of the logistics and how things are going to turn out.
Things haven't been great between us for a long time, and I have only realised how toxic our relationship is, and how unhappy I am trying to make things work. Not to mention our daughter being caught up in the arguments and negativity.
I love and care about him, and hate to see him upset, which is why I've stuck with things for so long, but I can tell he is hurting and I want to make it better for him, but the only way to do that is to sacrifice my happiness.
Right now I am finding it hard to remember the bad things and am picturing the future we'd planned, but I know it's futile.
In the back of my mind I am thinking that maybe this is the wake up call he needs, but I honestly don't see him changing- I mean he hasn't so far?
