      Not sure my reasons for my posting, I suppose its just to get advice help or support. I am currently in a draining relationship, on one hand you have me, always trying to please him, walks on egg shells 24/7, regrets arguing back once its kicked off. I am a nervous wreck, my mental health has declined increasingly over the years and I am a shell of the person I used to be. Him, hes controlling, aggressive, manipulative and loves putting me down to the point I think he thrives on the fact that I have lost control when hes put me down constantly, I do not even recognize myself as I must look scary, that’s when he knows he’s broken me and makes out that I need help.

      So that is a quick intro of why I am here, I need to leave the relationship but I do not how to with 2 young children involved.

      Thanks for reading.

      Hi Butterfly-Warrior

      Welcome to the forum and well done for leaping that hurdle to make you’re girst post.

      You don’t ever need a reason for posting. Just wanting to offload or un-jumble your thoughts can make a huge difference to the moment you are in.

      It sounds like you’ve been having a tough and exhausting time with your relationship. You have recognised what the problem is and you are here on the forum. This is the start of a journey which the ladies here will walk through with you, if that is what you’d like.

      It is possible to leave with two young children. Your local DV charity and advice from a good solicitor are good starting points.

      If you feel able to open up to relatives please do. The more support you can get, the better.

      Thank you for your replies. I already feel at home as I now know I am not the only one going through this. I feel confident with all the success stories that one day I can be free and help others. X
