My wife has drained me of my motivation to get back to my career
My wife has been suffering from severe low self esteem and insecurities for 25 years due to poor treatment from from her mom and brother's. I have to suffer the consequences of her parents mistreating her.
This is what I told her word for word
I made sacrifices that cripple me and held my career and knowledge back to where I'm having blackouts and memory problems because you don't seem to understand anything that's happening. If I don't take care of my mind, I wouldn't be able to take care of myself. So I'm done being the only one doing all the communicating for 8yrs.
When will you ever return the favor. I feel like you don't have any concern for my well being than I have for you. I'm done pulling you out of your emotional insecurities, low self esteem and lack of confidence in your self. Your mom was right you need serious help.
Its time for me to move on and take care of myself to take care of my daughters future. You are the most ungrateful person I have ever known. You take take take but don't give back what you received.
