Betrayed by LOVE
He told me he loved me…
But was very married

I told him I love him too…
So I left my husband for him

He told me he could not live in a city where my ex-husband lives…
So I moved 2 counties to keep him happy

My daughter told me she would not move with us…
So I lost my daughter to be with a man I love

He told me he did not like my puppy…
So I gave her away and broke my heart

He told me I no longer needed my car…
So I allowed my ex-husband to sell it to reduce his costs

He told me I no longer had use of his cars…
So am unable to visit my daughter in another county

He told me his kids won't accept me…
And maybe needs to move on…

I cry myself to sleep holding onto him, not wanting to let go for fear that I will wake up and find him gone…

Where did I go so wrong in love? How did I allow a man to come into my life and manipulate me so badly? When did I stop thinking for myself and allow a man to control me? When did I stop becoming an individual person and change to be a puppet on a string? How did I allow children to dictate my future?

You describe the grisly progression very well. And maybe when you find him gone, it'll be a really good thing for you ? It might be a necessary stage to get back your freedom ? And Anon's points are so relevant here
