I AM a 24-year-old man and my girlfriend humiliates me and controls my life.
I want to leave her but I’m ashamed because people will know that she beats me.
What’s even worse is that I’m unemployed and I rely on her to support me and the kids.
I still love her but I can’t stand the humiliation.
You’re in a toxic relationship that creates a form of comfort and starts to feel normal.
It’s understandable that you should feel trapped, because you’re financially dependent on her. But it’s important for her to seek help.
