Let me tell you something - this man has really big issues. He is unsecure, possesive, and he makes you suffer for his mental illnes. He wouldn't change ever if you keep forgiving him!!! He needs to see that if he behave like this no women will ever be with him. He would eventually change if he sees many women had left him because of his behaiviuor. And that's not even sure. He will see his faults only if he wants to see them and if he is smart enough to acknowledges his mistakes and try to change them and has a normal, happy life. There are people that live like this for the rest of their lifes. They just say that nobody understands them, that they have a reason to be violent and they never change. They just blame everybody, they say everybody treat them badly. My advice is really - DON'T STAY WITH HIM. Try to find help, from friends (not his, friends that are only your friends), your family, or social services. It will be hard in the beggining but you must know that you are strong and can deal with anything in your life, without him. After some time when this thing is behind you, you will feel so free, strong and happy, you will wonder how you ever thought to stay with him. Don't stay with him you don't need to suffer for his sickness. Because he is sick for sure. This is not normal relationship. The fact that he buys you things doesn't makes you his possession.You are living in hell now, while you can live peaceful, happy life. In order to good things to come to you, you have to first get rid of the bad thing. Don't be affraid to ask for help. People would wanna help you. You don't have to go trough this alone. Don't stop until you make your life as good and happy as you want it. There are men who would treat you with respect and will make you happy! It's not the man that you are with right now. My friend had boyfriend who threatened her that he will hurt her if she left him. She was affraid for so long, finaly she turned to her family and told them everything about him, they stood by her and told the man that he has to stay away from her. After that he never try to contact her again. So these men are usually coward, they just have big mouths. Wish you luck! And remember - you are strong, you can turn your life around, and you and your child DESERVE to be happy, respected and to live in peace! Kisses, hugs!
