Has anybody gone through this?
The difficulty with emotional turmoil is often that the problems come from people whom we have shown our vulnerable side.I am married to a man who was my friend and colleague.We are both from dysfunctional families.But after we were committed he's been taking advantage of my weaknesses.I bring up an issue and he calls me a provocative emotionally unstable person.If I raise my voice to stand up for myself it's showing disrespect and I am cruel.I should put up a facade of having no complaints and everything has to be pushed under the carpet .
He uses me to excuse his problems.I start thinking if I may be paranoid.I saw a therapist too.I was told that I was being played on and need not suffer so much.
Only I can't point a finger at what is happening.I have not seen a healthy marriage.I don't know where the line has to be drawn.We are raised in a culture that calls a woman weak if she can't keep her husband happy
My family looks perfect outside
My daughter adores her father
But I am crumbling inside everyday
I don't know what to do
