I'm at a loss on how to completely break away from my partner.
We have an almost 2 year old together, but I have had enough of him.
I am the sole supporter of our daughter. He pays rent for the house that we share & this i'm sure, makes him feel like he supports us financially, but he doesn't. I have discussed my feelings with him about this and what I expect from him but nothing changes. If I mention anything, he shuts down and communicating is difficult, no matter how I approach the subject. His work is too important and even if i work the same amount of hours as him. (Both labour intensive) I still have the full responsibility of our household and child, while he sits on his butt.
I'm over being angry with him, but we both are from broken homes & we were friends before we got together 10 years ago. I feel lost and i know we don't make each other happy.
It has progressively gotten worse since her birth and 2020 being a tough year, he lost work for alot of it, but was not proactive in getting more work or helping himself.
I want the best for my daughter, but don't want to have to kick him out of our lives but his actions speak so much louder than his words. Especially when his actions are nothing..I also don't want to have to be his mother, he is incapable of doing anything for our daughter without direct instruction or step by step....advise on how to approach this would be helpful!
