I broke up with my alcoholic boyfriend this week. I'm feeling angry, hurt, sad, and well on & on. There is only so much a person can take and at the end it wasn't even a big event that caused me to end things. I just really realized that no matter what he was not going to be the man I need him to be.
I had a really bad day at work and just needed to vent. He was too busy with HIS life to listen to me. When confronted on how much I have listened to him whine & vent over the last several months about his business and the economy he basically told me this was the man he was and he wasn't interested in changing, especially for me. It was like a light had come on that he wasn't the man I met and fell in love with anymore and I can't sit around and wait for that man to come back. So...I ended it. He thinks we can be still be friends but no contact works better for me. I can't leave that door open or I will never move on.
This board has been great at helping me reach that decision. Not that anyone here has told me to leave but reading and participating in the discussions has helped clarify issues in my own mind. Thanks so much.
