Customer:

AgapeDoc :

OK... not to worry about your English - we'll get through this :) OK..... It looks like you question is how do you leave with out feeling guilty.......

Customer:

yes

AgapeDoc :

Well, I must be honest, there is almost always some guilt on both parties in ANY breakup - so I won't promise that I can tell you how to avoid ALL feelings of guilt. However.......

AgapeDoc :

... It seems that he took advantage of you from the get go. He may not be fully aware of it, but he did.

AgapeDoc :

It sounds like he was in a financial bind and looked to you to help him. Once that was done, he probably started his attitude of not appreciating you :(

AgapeDoc :

You have been very accommodating in "taking a backseat" to his kids and done your part. There is not reason for you to feel guilty! He is the one that should feel guilty because HE took advantage of YOU!

AgapeDoc :

The best way to deal with this is to realize that you are going to have some feelings of guilt - it's natural (for anyone) to look for ANY little mistake that you did over the years in the relationship and focus on that as if it would have made a difference. Just realize that what is happening now is not fair.

Customer:

mm sometime I feel that he makes me fell bad... Well when we got married he had money...he even didnot wanted i work, i did nto have a car, because he did not wanted..

Customer:

well I have to leave know

AgapeDoc :

The other way to get over your feelings of guilt is to think about the following... Can you imagine staying in a relationship where you are constantly hurt? Is that fair to you? Would you do that to him?
