Leave His Sorry Self
We all have had dating disasters. I just want to give Maria some advice about her whole situation. If you allow someone to keep hurting you and your children, you should really think about why you are staying with a man who does not deserve you. You need to be a mother and see what is right for your beautiful children. Forget him. Why should you be wasting your time with someone who sees you when he sees fit, and is not even a real father to those children? This is the time to step up to the plate, leave his sorry self behind, and never look back. If you cannot do it for yourself, do it for the children who learn by what they see and observe. You need to be strong and just remember that by staying with him, you are allowing him to continue his pattern. You need to work on one your self-esteem and realize he does not love you. Someone who loves you will support you and those precious children. I feel for you, and I hope I can give you a little insight. I am twenty-four as well and believe me, if someone did that crap to me, he would be out in a hot second. You need to take control of the situation. Move back near your mom. You need help at the moment. Maria, focus on yourself and your children. You will be much happier than being with a man who is emotionally abusive to you. Do not allow it anymore. Know that you are worth so much. My heart goes out to you and your children. I do not know if you pray or not, but if you seek God, He will not abandon you. You will get all the strength needed to go on living.
