Thanks, I'm alone too but when things start to turn bad, leaving is sometimes the best present ever.
I had a 10 year relationship. It was going from bad to worse but one always hopes for improvement. I came home from work one day to find all her
possessions and half the furniture gone. No word, no warning, just gone. A week later, the rest of the furniture was gone. Being the self-critical
type I blamed myself for it all which is pure folly but there you go. 3 years later the feelings have subdued but it's never a nice thing.
I can now say, hand on heart, that I am glad she left but it took me a while to get here. Living in misery isn't much fun either.
Peace end good tidings to you.
