      I feel the same and am being swayed by those people who think he’s not so bad, and those who think he’s awful.. including our 3 adult children.
      I’ve been reading lots about trauma bonding and recognise myself and my behaviour in this, hence my minimising of what he’s done and my defence of him to others even now.
      Please be strong. I’m trying my best to be despite texting with him every day. In my head, I am moving away and never going back…. I’ve already sorted my new home and have a fabulous circle of supportive friends and family around me. In my heart, how can I live without him? How could I even think about being with another man? Tiny steps I think, we get through each minute and the longer we can stay away, the better it will be for us.
      You know deep down it was bad, it’s your survival instinct that focuses on the good bits.
      Take care, big hugs.
