      Anyone in here is like me?
      Staying in the marriage for my kid.
      I have no job. I am having a cronic illness and seems to have lost my confidence which once was so prominent in my personality!
      There is lots of lying, cheating in the relationship.

      He is kind and able to keep a job though. Not yelling or hitting. On surface it all seems okay. But not at all fulfilling.

      I feel confused, lonely and scared for my future.
      And yet unable to leave.

      Thank you for reading!

      Hi Leanz! Do you have someone you can talk to about this? A therapist or a religious counselor perhaps? It’s important to work through your feelings and getting some help with that is powerful. You need to renew your self-confidence and feel capable and competent again.

      I also wonder if your partner would be willing to go to couples counseling.
