That in the past when I told him to leave he said he were heartbroken and couldn’t I tell wben he were crying. I do recall him crying but it didn’t last very long were this all false tooto tug on my heart strings…..x
Hi there, he was probably crying for himself. Feeling sorry for himself. They never shed tears for us. Mine would cry like a baby when I asked him to leave. Usually after a bad bout of abuse. If they cared at all they wouldn’t hurt us x
Hi kip yes exactly probably crying because he were losing control too. Fair point love shouldn’t hurt. My ex is annoyed so much as iv never backed down this time and have him live back with me. As hard as it is x
I agree, they are always tears for themselves: tears that they are losing power, tears that they are not being adored, tears of how it will look for them in public, tears for how their plan hasn’t worked out…
It is never tears of worry and concern for you or your kids.
They are also capable of crocodile tears. I recall a scene now which I can see as clear as anything was him forcing crocodile tears. He had been horrible, and I had got upset, and as per usual he had walked out to scare me. I’d begged him to come back, and he had.
He knew he’d been awful though, so needed to play the victim rather than apologise. So he looked right up at me and squeezed his eyes as hard as he could, so that a tear came out, and he put his face as near to mine as possible as if to say ‘look, I’m crying- look what you’ve done.’
