Happy Horrordays all!

The holidays can trigger all sorts of uncontrollable suck, easily spiraling one into misery.

I've found that it helps to have a physical list of all the crappy things about my past relationship and ex. helps me reset.

Give it a shot, and treat the next three weeks like triage. All I want to get out of this year's holidays is just to survive it.

Cheers.


Naughty List
Denigrated me.
Issued ultimatums about relationship.
Attacked me.
Chose career over relationship.
Lied.
Unaccountable.

I am new to this forum. I have previously been in the infidelity forum. I am going through a divorce because of my husbands multiple EA's, deception and lies. The weekends are especially emotional for me because he is constantly trying to get me to come back to him despite the fact that I have file for divorce. I like the idea of the list, because it will help me keep things in perspective. So heres mine...

1. Multiple EA's
2. Lies and decieves
3. Manipulative
4. Controlling
5. Mean to my kids
6. Constantly looks at, talks to, and comments on other women...never talks about men.
7. Only did what he wanted to do.
8. Spent money wastefully
9. Spent too much time in a bar for "socialization".
10. Very mean verbally and emotionally.

I need to print this out and look at it when he starts to try to manipulate my emotions.

Actually, no! After reading some other posts, I thought of:

17. Refusal to communicate - being the 'wall' I talked to.
18. Lack of morals/conviction. Didn't really care about any causes outside of himself.

5) slept with me, then kicked me out that night(still a wtf moment for me)
6) kicked me out 8 months pregnant
7) can't truly take responsibility
8)forcing me to do all of the heavy lifting with his divorce
9) put his friends before me
10) would purposely upset me and then use it against me
11) always complained about the house, even when I was heavily pregnant and was supposed to be on bed rest
12) he was indecisive, still is
13) would drool over other women, in front of me
14) ignore me on our wedding anniversary, only talked about our "hot waitress".
15) jerked my feelings around during separation
16) selfish

AI - I know exactly how you feel! Still a wtf moment for me too. Had a small argument with stbxw (was dear wife then) then had makeup sex in the kitchen. I stepped out for a cig after and she flipped me off, locked the door and went to bed. Left me to sleep on the patio all night. Very next night, before we even had a chance to talk about it, she didn't come home. Slept at OMs house (didn't know until later) and missed daughters school award ceremony even though I texted her in the morning and gave her plenty of time to make it home.

That's when I got the ILYBNILWY speech. pft!

Not the kind that get my love, respect or attention any more!

Did yours have childhood trauma? Mine did and I see many borderline personality traits in her. Ever read the book "Stop Walking On Eggshells"? Might be enlightening based on what you describe.
