After 25 yrs I have given and do not know how to take care of me. I have children all my life and married a terrible person who belittled me and took me for everything. I can't seem to move on at my age. Or to let go of everything I worked for. I feel I am the stupidest women that has walked the face of the planet.

Nothing is a waste of time if you've learned something at the end of it. You raised your children, you can feel pride in that. You survived hardship, you can feel proud about that. You can't hold on to the pain and hurt, because that will only eat away at you. You have to move on. Take the lessons you've learned and start fresh. Have faith in yourself.

I have tried to respond to you. I do not know how to pour my heart out. Everything seems insurmountable. Thank you for caring. I must have been desperate and ironically still am. Only two people responded and I am grateful. I am not someone to post things but I have been struggling for awhile without result.

Hi Christine,
As someone who wasted 11 years on a Class A narcissist who belittled me, took every, thing I had to give and tried to control me and break my spirit I can tell you that you are not stupid !
You have lost faith in yourself, and forgotten how strong you really are, and I bet you are so emotionally drained that all you want to do is go somewhere all alone and sleep for a week.(at least !)
But you are not alone.
How old are you ?
Are you still with him ?
What is your situation ?
Get it off your chest and see if we can talk through some stuff :-) xx
