I'm lost, confused and annoyed.... When do you give up?

How do you know when he's the "one"? I feel like every time I'm absolutely sure, he does or says something to me that puts me right back to square one. And when is enough, enough? When is it that you realize that you just can't make it work anymore? I really don't want to give up but I'm just feeling so hopeless and insecure. Someone please talk some sense into me....I'm so lost! I feel like nothing I do is ever right, or enough. I feel invisible until someone is hungry or needs something from me. I feel like the harder I try the worse I make things. Am I crazy?!

You need to have a heart to heart with him and right out ask him what is going on. It really sounds like you are very depressed and burnt out on being a caregiver to all the children. What are you doing for yourself? You are not crazy. Taking care of the family and everything else on your own, while your bf is away working is alot on your shoulders. Sometimes we all want to just give up, although we know that we cannot. Hang in there.

I am trying so hard to hang in there. It's just really tough sometimes and I'm alone. No one wants to hear about my kids driving me up the wall all day. I feel misunderstood and underappreciated. But, at the same time, they all make me feel like I ask so much of them. Life is so hard sometimes.
