I absolutely understand your pain but one sentence in your note stuck out for me and that is "I hate my kids because I see their dad". You need to address the incredible pain you feel because you simply cannot let it affect your children in this way. They are undoubtedly hurt too by his behaviour. They are victims in this too. And your job as their mother is to help them navigate their own pain through this.I hope you will file for divorce. But more than that, I hope you'll find yourself a therapist who can help you begin to sift through all your pain. Please.
I'm sorry for all the pain you've been through. It sounds like you are one decision away from a different life. You are worth more than you have realized up to this point. Your children need you.
Well Anonymous! I do believe your lucky HE LEFT, and you didn't STICK IT OUT and go through life with a liar, who you resented, and wishing that he would leave...Cuz that's what I did! I tried to throw him out 3x's, after having multiple online affairs but he wouldn't go. Write me if you want at Coey141@gmail.comAlways wanted to talk to someone who's husband cheated in the same way as mine did.Good luck.
So sorry you are going through this anon! I will say I struggle around one of my kids birthdays since right around when she was born was when my husband started both affairs. It is so hard to comprehend since they lasted for 10 years. I had confronted him through the years and he denied anything every happening at all with another woman. I also have a hard time with connections to trips and holidays. I have this stack of amazing cards, poems, notes and also great gifts he gave me through all those years. So it was and still can be confusing how someone can do what he did but still treat me the way he did. That first year I wanted to go away and just have him deal with my child's birthday. I struggled to even think about it. It was crushing since kids love these events in their lives and all I felt was sadness and resentment towards him. And the birthday was a reminder. It made me look back and question everything. It has taken a lot of time and work but now the one thing I am most thankful are my kids. And as others say we need to be there for them as parents. After dday I pretty much put my effort all into myself and the kids. It was more basic needs at first but even now almost two years past I find I have refocused on me, us and them. I have a much smaller inner circle and choose not to spend a lot of time with others.
Anon I totally get why your angry and hurt .. you have every reason to hate your h right now but like Elle that sentence about hating your kids really stood out for me .. I hope you get some help anon talk to someone let them know how your feeling, ask for help with the children don't keep this inside.. I'm really pleased you reached out here.. we know how your feeling and we got your back.. your doing a fantastic job at looking after your toddlers in the circumstances but if your feeling low in mood please speak with your doctor or health visitor they are there to support you..please keep us posted.. sending you hugs xx
Your children are going to need therapy too. I'm with Elle, please don't take your hatred for him out on your children. If you feel like you are going to harm them in any way please find someone to take them until you can wrap your mind around what it happening in your life. Get the therapy!!!
You have PTSD and need help, your strong but all this is too much. Your in over your head. Get help please. My heart breaks for you that makes me cry. You are abused and betrayed. Get your self up and see a lawyer, you need a plan B but quick. I was just like you and speak from experience. This financial stuff is like a black cloud and daily crisis. My heart is crying the big bo ho tears.
