Jean, I don't blame you in the slightest and just want to wish you the best of luck in going forward on your own. It's worked out good timing for you as we will be coming up to longer, brighter days soon and you will be able to get out and make new friends, spend time in old ones and do exactly what you want when you want with no one to hold you back or tie you to mealtimes etc

Things can only get better, leave him to sort himself - he will realise what he has lost (thrown away) but don't take him back out of pity or guilt.

Hi Jean,

It's sad when you have reached the end of your patience which you seem to have done.
If you are unhappy then the question you have to ask yourself is, do I want to go on not enjoying life or will I be brave and start again with whatever that brings?

If he has packed his bags a number of time before you surely wont know if he'll continue doing that.

Only you can know if it's the right decision and it does take courage to change your life radically.

So if you do go it alone I wish you every happiness.

susan i do think i am doing the right thing. i have shared my home, time and effort and get no thanks. if i say the wrong thing he packs his bags. will have to leave him to get on with his own life. i have never walked away from him, allways been there for him. hes lost the best friend he will ever have.

Only You can know if you are doing the right thing but good luck with starting a new life if the old one was indeed an unhappy one.

after 12yrs of being taken for granted and used. my so called partner has gone back to his place yet again. 4th and last time he will be doing it, have helped him through all his health problems with c.o.p.d. so i am now going to have me time to do what i want, when i want. at last i feel free as it was allways about him, never me. am sure others have gone through this, its taken me a long time to wake up. do others think i am doing the right thing in getting on with my life?
