At 40 H is getting therapy and attempting to quit drinking. He wants me to praise him and be excited. I’m wondering how exactly I’m supposed to get over the resentment of the 17 yr dumpster fire and having to take care of the kids myself?

3 yrs ago, I left my abusive, freeloading, narcissistic exH. Since then, I've tripled my bank balance, gotten 2 raises and found real love with an amzg guy who works harder than I do and gives 100% with everything. I've never been happier.

I work nights. The number of working moms who assumed I was a SAHM and talked down to me was gross. No, I just prioritized my kids schedule over mine. And yeah, I went and relaxed on their first days of school.

I’m so stressed and overwhelmed. Budgeting, DH NOT budgeting, business, housework, sick kids, covid stress, meal planning and prepping, laundry, wildfires, birthday parties, freeloading neighborhood kids, back to school…DH doesn’t think about ANY of this.

The main reason I married DH was because he's good in bed. That fucker WILL go on ED meds, if need be. I'd do the same, if there were a med that could help me.

I moved back to where I lived as a teenager. I thought it was the awkwardness of my teen years that made it hard. But it’s just as hard now. How is it that I’m socially successful in one place and an abject failure in another?

My husband doesnt love or trust me anymore. Because i lied about something stupid when we were on a rough patch already. I sabotaged myself and am now collecting what i sowed. I dont know how to fix this. Husband doesn't even want to try

I don't understand men who parade around shirtless outside. Unless it's insanely hot and you're doing manual labor, why would you want to not wear clothing?

Feeling so irritable and resentful. Eating is not masking my feeling anymore. I’ve had it.

My MIL is so undependable. And I'm tired of my work and my self care having to make all the sacrifices when that has happened during this pandemic.

I am so mad that I allowed him into my head, & my heart. I am so hurt he is now ghosting me & I have no idea why. No fight, no argument. Just silence. He chased me. I was weak, I caved knowing it was wrong, & now I am sad & hurt.

I wish small, informal weddings would become the norm. Like, exchange vows, dance and drink in my backyard in a sundress and flip flops.

My life long friend ditched me after she and her husband bought a big fancy house and moved to a snotty suburb. Knowing you have become disposable to someone important to you is the worst feeling in the world.

I love someone who has mental issues and is too dumb to see it's directly related to drugs and alcohol and eating poorly :/

I was always a prop in my parents' lives. My personal dreams and needs, thoughts and feelings, were irrelevant. They only cared what other people thought. I try so hard not to treat my own kids like that. I pray I'm breaking the toxic cycle.

My SAHM friends join every MLM. They are constantly selling overpriced crap as their "side hustles". I try to support my friends, but enough is enough. I do not want your crap!

My SIL posts her mundane every day life on IG, every effing day! No one needs to see the same shit in a different outfit or kids in a different out day after day. Why do ppl post their whole life online? That stuff makes no sense! Privacy? No 1 cares

I’m getting fixed up. I want a childfree life. My spouse is 100% supportive. No one in our families is supportive, but that’s okay they don’t understand.

We used the pandemic as an excuse to slowly cut in-laws loose. This summer has been so AMAZING! It's fun & carefree & we're living our best life! It has everything to do with getting out from under their dark, toxic negative storm cloud. Good riddance!

I swear Grandma intentionally made a bigger mess if she knew someone had to clean it up. If she had to clean up, she didn't make a mess while cooking. If someone else had clean-up, she left the kitchen looking like a fucking bomb went off.

Cannot wait to have my own place again. I'm finally learning what to look out for when it comes to a guy. No-boundary having, controlling, disrespectful man children can all drop dead as far as I'm concerned. Never again

Pretty certain that in a glitch/thumb fumble my phone or email forwarded my property manager a very embarrassing flurry of emails between myself and my partner. A ridiculous argument with lots of profanities.. good grief. Never happened to me before.

When my bio son was young, his SD didn't want me to use the "good" ziploc bags for his lunch. Just the fold style ones. And nope, I will never forget.

If I heard someone speaking to another person the way I talk to and about myself, I'd beat them with a bat. Yet here I am, saying absolutely horrible, disgusting things to and about myself. And I believe me, because I don't lie.

life got so much better when inlaws passed. they were causing so much stress with their demands. they refused to admit their limits and wanted everyone to make it all ok without changing. now if my mom would just go life would be perfect.

Every time H opens his mouth, I cringe. We only have our kids in common anymore. He’s this crazy right wing failed high school “expert at everything” and I literally can’t stand talking to him anymore. MARRY THE RIGHT MAN LADIES.

Relieved about mandatory masks for all students in this school district. Even pre-Covid I hated exposing my babies to the nasty plethora of germs in school.
