My boyfriend and I are in love and have been seeing each other for six years, I gave up my previous relationship to be with him but he did not and still lives with his partner.
He tells me frequently that we will be together in the same house, but that he is terribly afraid of the confrontation and upset if he leaves.
I keep in the background and wait for this day, but just lately I am feeling distraught about this situation and really feel as if I am falling apart, and family & friends are beginning to notice.
They are very angry with him for allowing this state of affairs to continue and I just do not know where to turn.
I cannot leave, the last time I tried I had a breakdown and have not yet returned to work.
I would be extremely grateful for your advice.
Your boyfriend stays with his partner because he is afraid of confrontation, and he hasn’t overcome his fear in 6 years?
I think it’s time for a reality check...
It is tearing you apart being with this guy, yet it tears you apart leaving him, so I think it’s time to put you back together, don’t you?
Before you start getting what you want, you need to start being who you can be.
You are Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy, should be your mantra, and from that position you can start designing your life, as you want.
Think as your life as a film, each scene playing it’s way through. Is it a tragedy, or a film of Hope, Happiness and Love? I know what you’d like it to be, so start to be the Director, not the Actor being spliced and cut and left on the Editors floor.
