I’m at a complicated place in my life. I’m in a relationship with an opioid addict who treats me well usually but has outbursts and doesn’t appreciate his family as much as he should. I love him but being with him isn’t doing anything good for me. He won’t be successful and has admitted he never wants to quit using heroin for the rest of his life.
I need to be strong and make a good decision for myself, not him. My reason for staying with him is because I’m afraid he’s going to overdose and I know how hard it would be for his family to find him overdosed so I felt like I had to stay and be there for him until that happens but all it’s doing is wearing me down. I have finally accepted the fact that I need to leave and I now want to.
I feel proud of myself for finally doing something for me.
