I divorced my angry and abusive husband after 17 years. We have been apart now for seven years and it was the best decision I could have made. My children do not have to witness his rageful outbursts. Our son did not grow up thinking it was okay to treat women like s***, and our daughter has grown up knowing that not all men are assholes and to expect less when it comes to relationships.
My self-esteem was down to nothing because of his verbal tirades. There were many days that I wished I were dead so that it could be over. I started over at 47 years old. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done but definitely the best decision for me. It’s saved my sanity.
There is never an excuse to treat the person you claim to love like garbage. ADD is not an excuse for bad behavior
