Good afternoon, Autumn, and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.
My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston.
Ohhh sweet soul, what horrible experiences you have had. I am very sorry. Please know, first and foremost that nothing you could have done would have changed this man's wandering eyes. You could be the most gorgeous, smartest, kindest and loving woman on planet earth and the behavior would be the same. Sadly, that part of the problem is his to own and address.
Please continue doing your counseling, ensuring you become strong in every way. You need to understand further why you choose men who are not good for you. You have six children who rely on you and you need to be the best you can be.
In regard to what your decision should be....I do believe you have already made it. It sounds like you are very clear about what you want/need to do and are seeking validation. Only you know your situation and only you know what is best for yourself and your family. Please trust yourself and your intuition as it always speaks truth.
Have I answered your question? Is there anything else I can do to assist you further? I want to ensure you are pleased with my service. I also gently request you provide a star rating for me. Of course, we can continue to talk after the rating is provided.
Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Yes, of course you are. Your feelings are what they are--they are neither right or wrong--they just are. I honestly don't know a person who wouldn't feel this way about someone they cared about. I am so sorry....
I understand, Autumn and am sorry you are not pleased with my answer. I will open your question up to other professionals so perhaps you will get an different perspective. I truly wish you all the best.
