Iím just really tired. Sorry, for the posting frenzy, but I figure this is a lot less destructive than anything else. I donít know if Iím done or if itís just the antiversary season. I did post that I want to create a safe environment for WS to speak on what happened, and I try to tell him that I post things when I am looking for advice. Sometimes, I forget, but I think Iíve attempted to keep him informed of what Iím posting, whoís commented, etc. Iím trying, but this is antiversary season (D-days, oh boy!) and itís like heís just regressed.

I get it: he did this; itís hard on him. He triggers. It sucks.

But at the same token, I keep feeling like my feelings and my needs just arenít being met. Yes, this time period is amplifying everything. Yes, seeing me wake up every morning with the same depressed, distressed look is weighing on him.

But I am just frigginí TIRED.

I know, I know that I posted about creating a safe space for him, but dammit, what about me! What about MY safe space? I know thatís selfish; I am a madhatter; I have to be cognizant of his needs too, but fuck all if I am not FRIGGIN TIRED OF BEING COGNIZANT OF HIS NEEDS! Iíve been that way for a while, walking on eggshells sometimes, nervous about the response Iím going to get if I try and tell him how I feel.

I am no saint; sometimes, I blow up. Nowadays, itís been more often than not. I try to reel my anger in, but dammit, I donít CARE if heís conflict avoidant. I donít CARE if heís uncomfortable. I got fucked over! I got cheated on! Some days, some weeks, I just canít BE Ms. Super Patient sometimes. I am hurting here! I am seriously fucking hurting and him just avoiding things because itís uncomfortable is making me sick at my fucking desk right now, holding back tears.

Yes, I blew up at him on my text messages to him and told him if he wants his freedom, he can walk. I spilled my angry guts out at him and told him that I was a damn good person and I lost myself in all of this and I just want to be in an authentic relationship with a fellow authentic human being, warts and all. He asked me about OM, and I just spewed a whole bunch of crap at him that Iíve been holding in about my own A, because FUCK, YOU DONíT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT BUT SUDDENLY, WHEN I AM ASKING YOU ABOUT YOURS AND TELLING YOU WHAT YOU DID WRONG, NOW YOU WANT TO BRING UP MY A??!!! WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!!!

I am just broken. I hurt. Iíve been hurting and Iím just fucking sad, and sad isnít even a strong enough word to cover what Iím feeling. I just hurt. I want to cry.

Erica...I just read your profile. I guess its over when you make it over. I'm so sorry for all of your pain. I can hear it in your post. He has a lot of boundary issues, if he has boundaries at all. I don't have advice, I just wanted you to know you've been heard. There's a lot of hurts in your history. Maybe some other SIers with wisdom will have answers for you.

((Shockederica)) I am in the same place so I'm sorry I have no answers. Bumping this so that hopefully others will chime in.

Oh but ((ShockedErica11)) you are so young. I'm so sorry that this is how you have started out in life, but it certainly doesn't have to be the theme of the rest of your life. I know it seems so hard to start over, but trust me it will only get harder and more complicated as you add kids and mortgages. You are young, you have a whole wonderful life ahead of you. Start fresh with someone you can trust and be trust worthy. Life is choices, so choose wisely. This may have been your past, but it doesn't have to be your future.
