      No. You are standing up for yourself, asking not to be treated like his servant. My ex used to do nothing in the house and garden even though I worked full time and he was unemployed. He then used to moan to everyone about how I never cooked fir him. He forgot to mention that when I did cook, he’d never eat it. So I just gave up trying. Yiu can never win with these men, no matter what you do. They use criticism to control you. Then deflection to make you think you’re the problem. You’re worth more than that.

        Thanks for your reply I just feel like I get there and then he comes back and the abuse cycle starts again I thought I was strong but I’m obviously very would t say weak but just trying to keep everything normal for my toddler because well I hate that her father is who he is I feel so stuck and I feel guilt when I want to leave
        I am taking steps though I’m following my dream career I’m trying to lose weight and have al these new trendy treatments wasn’t allowed to have my eyebrows done before but I DO what I want now so I guess slowly slowly
        The thing is I just want him to find someone and leave me alone that would be such a good thing for me I can’t be me when he’s with me I’m a shell of a person
