I am a 22 year old college student. I just got 3 new jobs, and my son is 5 months old. I am striving to make a good life for my family. Now my son's father.... He's a character. He talks about making a good life for his family, but when it comes to actions, he's a bum. He doesn't apply to jobs. He struggles to find a place to sleep every night. And his anger is outrageous, I hate it.! I've spoken to him numerous times about getting a job and bringing in some type of income to help his family. He always has some excuse why things aren't working out. Every step I've taken to help our family has crumbled in his hands. I got a brand new car right before I had my son. A month after my son was born, he totalled the car with me and my son in the backseat. He promised to get us a new car... but excuse after excuse. Then I've gotten phones, and he'll steal my phone, break them, etc. All over his anger issues. Not to mention we're in a steady cycle of abuse and sorry's. He swears I'm cheating and some more, but who has time to cheat when they're a full time college student taking care of a brand new baby, and now working 3 jobs. I'm at the final straw. I know I need to get rid of this man, but how do I leave someone as persistent as he is. He knows where all my classes are, and no matter how many times I tell him we're done, he always pops up and acts like everythings a-okay. He knows where I live. And he knows my whole life schedule pretty much.
How do I leave him? How do I live my life and make a life for my son without worrying about this manboy popping up whenever he wants and causing more damage to everything I try to do?
