To want my partner to leave(19 Posts)
I am desperate please help me I'm in despair and need advise . My partner left to stay in his mums at night as she was unwell . But continued to come here everyday and expect things to go on as normal . He is a manipulative narcissistic man who hasn't touched me in 12 years . I am a shadow of my former self . I have had health problems for two years now and I realised that this man was adding to them by not showing me love or care . Or by being a proper partner re money and helping me and all the support I need as a parent . My teen has been ok from September as she understood I was feeling better when he wasn't here and I made the mistake of ignoring him completely and doing what he has always done to me . My child has suffered because of this . He would be quite happy to live like this for the rest of his days . I have not been to a solicitor as I thought he would eventually get the messsge . But no he continues to be the parent he has always been by driving her where she needs to go but not acknowledging my existence . Since Christmas I don't know what has happened. She had completely turned on me and says that I am trying to take her away from her dad and that I have ruined her life . She has become angry and aggressive to the point I cannot sit in the same room as her . I have to add my health problems have left me with anxiety and depression also due to lack of support and love . I have always been a brilliant mum but Iv had to do it on my own but basically I allowed this man to live in my home not contribute to our daughters care and or join us as a family . I could not cope with this any longer to the point that I developed agoraphobia and I was do strong before Christmas . I have always had the love of my daughter to see me through these hard and lonely times . She had just told me that he has asked her to go to a friends caravan over the mid term break . He did this in the summer also leaving me very unwell with no one as I have no family or friends . He is doing it again .please help me . My daughter hates me and tells me so . I am devastated and am trying to rein her in and explain that her dad walked out on me and I have never stopped her having a relationship with him but for my mental and physical health I am better if he leaves . Which he will not do . House is in my name . I'm losing everything . I detest what he has done to me and now my daughter
Have you got any support in real life?
It is ok for you to tell him to leave,perhaps it would be easier for you if you had some one to help you
The only pearl of wisdom I have to offer from my experience is that there is a heap of difference between a child telling you they hate you and them actually hating you. She is feeling angry, maybe fed up, frustrated and a heap of other things, but her love for you will still be there underneath. Allow her to go with her dad for the week if that's what she wants to do. Get yourself some help that doesn't involve relying on your daughter.
I don't know why I haven't but I feel I was protecting my daughter but I am damaging myself . I need to but no hand no support
Thank u I do not rely on my daughter for any emotional or physical support . He is manipulating her in to feeling sorry for him . He cannot sit with her ask her about her friends or life or even eat dinner with her . He is taking her away as he is controlling the situation and she will go as she is afraid of hurting him . It is him that is relying on her for emotional and physical support not me thank you for the enlightenment
You need help, and pronto. The first thing would be to get your head straight, and for that to happen you need to be free of this emotional manipulation.
How can I do that when he walks into my home every day . I will be making an app with solicitor . I want counselling for my daughter and me but I am afraid of anyone thinkinv I cannot cope . I can cope and have done on my own for 15 years
I have not spoken a word to him since sept this was the wrong thing to do but I could not bring myself to because he could still have looked after his mother at night but still been a partner and parent but he could not manage that . He has used me as a doormat for so long I was past caring . It wasn't til he walked out I felt peace in my own home . His dysfunctional way of living has had a profound effect on my self esteem and Health . I need him to stay away from me and to see my daughter under the terms that he receives counselling for his problems
My head was totally straight about him going to look after his mother . I had the break I needed but he will not let go and continues to have control over me . Since Christmas my daughter has developed a feeling sorry for him as this is what he does when he tries to manipulate people
What you need is to have an injunction served to prevent him coming anywhere near you. Whether a solicitor thinks you have reasonable grounds on which to apply is a different matter.
Bear in mind that this course of action is not going to help your relationship with your daughter.
please don't get upset and worry about what's already happened, you're taking steps in the right direction in terms of contacting a solicitor and getting therapy for you and your daughter. Like a PP said there's a big different between her saying she hates you and her actually hating you. Thinking of you
PS please don't worry about people thinking you can't cope or judging you, you and your daughters relationship is more important
Thank you for saying that . I know it won't help our relationship but this is worse I know that now
This sounds a lot like parental alienation. Without wishing to distress you further do you think that your partner is manipulating your DD behind your back? I grew up in a family where this happened and my stepfather was so sneaky about it. He constantly undermined my DM to us kids and would provide us with lifts, presents etc when we acted out towards her.
Sorry, couldn't work it out from your OP, but have you actually told him you want to end the relationship? If you've just started ghosting him out of the blue he may not realise what you want. If you want him to move out you should probably tell him that. You also should probably explain to your daughter what's going on, but be careful not to say anything derogatory about her dad as it is unhelpful to do so and will only drive a wedge. As tempting as it may be to lay blame at your partner's feet, she won't thank you for it. Maybe frame it more as a 'no longer happy together' thing? I'd also seek therapy if I were you. Sorry if I'm reading your post wrong and you've done these things already.
Thank you for your input and I'm sorry you had to go through that with your stepfather . It certainly feels like that as she has started to shout and scream at me when he is here of course he never intervenes or supports me and never has done but probably enjoys that I'm being roared at .
I just found this website that seems to have a lot of interesting resources which you might find useful.
