      So things are starting to fall apart for him.
      i don’t want to stick the knife im just relieved his tactics are starting to fail and he’s loosing power.
      i default to reasonable and care taking, rather than defensive but then worry maybe I’m not protecting enough.

      You feel sorry for him because you are a kind and compassionate person, depsite what he has done to you. This is our strength and should not be underestimated. We shouldn’t lose that strength but we need to learn to be compassionate to ourselves first. Being compassionate to yourself first, I think, means letting go fully of our abusers and not letting our compassion drag them back into our lives.

      Take care xx

      Also SilkyHalide, never forget what evil he is capable of. To wilfully want to alienate your daughters from their mother.

      This may be just a set-back for him. Don’t forget abusers prey on our pity and compassion. How do you know things are falling apart for him? He may just want you to think that. Is that information coming from your children?

      Don’t worry about him. Worry about you and your daughters and your very precious relationship between you and your daughters that he wants to destroy, which once he’s back on his feet he’ll start trying to destroy again. These abusers are ruthless.

      Don’t worry even if things are falling apart for him he’ll manipulate enough of his ‘allies’ people who will listen to his sad tale of woe, to come to his aid. People and families normally rally around abusers, its the real victims who are left to fend for themselves with very little help.

      Sounds cynical but that’s my experience.

      I am keeping him away from me.
      I don’t want to be guilty of alienating him from them now.
