What is wrong with me? It hurts me to kick him out, but I know that for me, I have to. I found this saying: "It's better to break your own heart by leaving, rather than having that person break your heart every day that you're with them".
Big hugs FM, you're doing incredibly well.
I think its just the nature of people that are compassionate, empathetic people.
Really though you are doing him a favor. He will never learn or change if he isn't given consequences of his actions. Everything you are doing now, he had it coming and then some.
And the most important thing is that you are doing this not only for yourself but also your daughter. She now will not be exposed to a bad relationship in which her mother is mistreated.
Just stay strong and don't lose site of his actions over the past years. Try not to feel guilty or bad for standing up for yourself, and enforcing boundaries and leaving an unhealthy abusive relationship (Serial cheating is a form of emotional abuse)
I strugge with this mental fence riding every day. I find my empathy waning though as the cold stares of detachment from my WW are chilling my resolve.
