"A divorce is like an amputation: you survive it, but there's less of you." - Margaret Atwood
The situation with my wife has become unbearable, and I'm realizing that I can't see myself being with her for the next 10 years. Her demands have become abusive, and there's no love left between us. It's a painful realization to make, but I know that I can't keep living like this.
I've tried my best to make things work, but it seems like my efforts are falling on deaf ears. My wife's expectations are unreasonable, and I can't keep up with them. It's not fair for her to treat me with such disrespect, and I deserve to be treated better.
Divorce may be the only option at this point. It's a difficult decision, but I know that staying in a toxic relationship would be even worse. I want to be there for my daughter, but I also need to take care of myself and my own well-being.
I'm sad that our marriage has come to this, but I know that I deserve to be in a relationship where I'm loved and respected. I hope that my wife can find happiness and fulfillment in her own life, and that we can both move forward in a positive way for the sake of our daughter.
It's a painful process, but I know that I will come out stronger on the other side. I will always love my daughter and be there for her, and I hope that we can find a way to navigate this difficult time with grace and compassion.
TRUTH: I love my wife, but she is hurting me every day. I cannot wake up feeling guilty and unwanted.
