We were only married for 2 years but knew each other for 6 years, I got pregnant after 6 months of getting married then found out when our daughter was 2 months that he had been drinking alcohol behind my back, I thought I could help him when it did all come out but he didn't want it, things go worse he became violent towards me and my daughter, threatened me that if i left he would kidnap our daughter and I would never see her again, I was living in fear until one day I got a injunction against him and it's all over, I still question myself…was it the right thing to do? Did I give up to easily? I don't miss him but I do miss having companion, who would want me now? I'm a single mummy :( In need of motivation!!!!!

Thank you so much, it feels good to know that there is someone else out there who can relate to me, since I left him I've had so many of his relatives call and text me, trying to manipulate me to get back with him and claim he's changed, all the usual stuff I've heard before and i think it's starting to get to me. I guess only time can heal me and now I've heard from you you're my inspiration so thank you for helping me to believe that there are good men out there :)

You did the right thing!!!!
I know where you are coming from, my first husband was (still is) an alcoholic. It took me 7 years to leave him though. I totally understand the feelings of loneliness but does get better.
I found you need to learn to enjoy your own company and when you least expect it the perfect person will come along. It's amazing how much we learn about ourselves when we are single, but truly embracing it can be hard.
Don't worry about who would want you now, there are plenty of single mothers that find someone again. I did and he is the most wonderful husband. He treats me like a princess and is my best friend. We never argue and we always comment to each other that those that say a marriage has to be worked at, have married the wrong person. It took me 5 years of being single though to find him.
