      Hi all,

      I have been in a relationship with my partner for a few years. The relationship started off well, and then slowly a few red flags started to happen. I have given him so much, and always respected him and loved him. I choose to stick by him, sadly things got much worst. I then realised I was in a relationship with a n********t.

      So much has gone on, and I have been hurt time and time again… I feel like a complete doormat at times. Throughout my life, I feel that I have always given people many chances, and have always been very forgiving even after some terrible behavior of either friends or family. I am finding it very difficult to let go even after everything he has done to me. I always seem to crave answers and question why he has done this to me. I never receive any explanations from him. He can never see what he has done wrong. I feel numb and my mind feels very empty. I love him so much, and can’t imagine my life without him.

      I would appreciate it if anyone could help me find some strength. I try and speak to my friends and family, but I feel like they cannot relate to how I am feeling.

      Thank you.

      Welcome to the forum, I’m sorry you find yourself here. You’ll get lots of advice and support here. We’ve all been exactly where you are – confused, hoping, loving. It’s a hard truth to accept but you’re unlikely to get the answers you crave, or the changes you need from him regardless of how much you give/love, they’ll just take take take. Start researching, reading forums, books like ‘why does he do that’ by Lundy Bancroft and watch videos about trauma bonding on YouTube. You’re not alone anymore x
