I'm having a tough time these days.

I feel like I've failed.
I failed at my marriage.
I failed my husband. My daughter. Myself.

I know I didn't.
But when someone you love tells you they want it to end.
You can't help but blame,

I've replayed my entire eleven year relationship in my head.
Over and Over.
Five plus of those years we were married.

I wonder if it was because I was so young.
Did I not love enough.
Did I not give enough.

But I did.

I loved with everything I had.
I still am loving.
He knows it and I know it.

Marriages take work. Patience. Love. Understanding.
I did all that.

I didn't fail.

He chose to leave me when I needed him the most.

He chose to fail.

Way to turn it around, girl! You got it right. You're in the right, and you are doing such a good job of being strong for your little girl! Team Mommy!

This breaks my heart. I can relate to the feeling you're having, not in a marriage but a very long term relationship with kids.

I love the last 2 sentences, it's the truth!

don't blame yourself, if you loved with all you had... that is always enough... Your prince charming is out there. I was with mine for 9 years.. lesson learned, don't ever feel like you failed!

So sorry this is happening to you. You didn't fail- He failed. Marriage is alot of work. Its too bad he chose to give up on you and your family. You will be the winner in all of this. Trust me ~ be a good mommy and you will always be fulfilled.

Wow, I feel like I wrote that post-my husband left me when our little guy was 6 months old. I wanted to continue to make things work and he said he didn't have it in him and believed he would be a better father to our son outside of the marriage...I guess that would depend on what his definition of a good father is. I am going through the same journey you are. Feel free to email if you need an ear :)

Hang in there it does get better. You didn't fail, you gave it your all. And really you would be failing if you stayed in an unhealthy marriage.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. I honestly have no words. I can't imagine what that would be like at such a vulnerable time.
