Have any of you ever been in a relationship that you're unhappy in, and you want out, but you can't do it????? i don't want to really go into detail right now, I 'm just scared to leave b/c I've never been alone... and most of the time I DON'T feel this way.

I mean idk, I just get like this sometimes. I have major depressive disorder & I get depressed pretty easily; sometimes over little or dumb stuff. And it's hard to get out of it. But when I do, I sit back and think and I feel like I over-reacted. I have strong emotions sometimes that are overwhelming for me to deal with alone.

I don't know if it's me or him. Most likely, both.

I am not really looking for advice/solutions on my relationship since I barely revealed anything about it, so please refrain from giving it. I'd just like to hear from anyone who has ever felt this way, and how it was/is for you, how did/are you coping, if/how you left, worked things out, etc etc

I guess I just want someone to talk to... I don't really feel comfortable talking about most of my life/emotions/problems with anyone. Thanks. =)

I spent 22 years in a marriage that was never happy and that 90% of the time I desperately wanted out of...the other 10% I resigned myself to. I'm not joking about that either. I was also very afraid of being on my own. When I finally left, I surprised everyone--myself most of all. I was able to get a job, buy a house, pay my bills and do quite well for myself. I also grew up. I worked on myself and now I DON'T SETTLE! I have since remarried to a wonderful man who is everything I ever dreamed of! The key to ANY relationship is to be happy with yourself and keep the lines of communication open at all times. Before you can love and be loved, you have to love yourself. Old cliche, I know but do you understand it? If you don't love yourself, you don't demand to be treated right (and I don't mean verbal demands), you don't attract people who will respect you and treat you the way you should be because YOU don't treat YOURSELF that way! When you love yourself, without even thinking about it you will only allow into your life the type of person who will treat you with respect and give you the love and devotion you deserve.
Without giving you advice, that's about all I can say.

I was in a marriage that I was extremely unhappy in, and fortunately, it was only for a little over a year. I definitely didn't go about it the right way tho. I wasn't happy and I wasn't getting what I needed from him emotionally, so I went behind his back and texted a (male) friend of mine and lied about it and when my stbx found out, he asked for a divorce. At the time I was completely devastated, but now, I couldn't be happier. We've been separated for a little over 2 months and I feel like the me I was when I met him. I was not me while with him.
I hope this helps.
