My husband is on his way to meet another woman in another state. He does not respect me. I can forgive him but I don't think I can live with the disrespect any longer-- it shows too loud in my children. I have come to this conclusion: I cannot change his negative view of me by doing better, working harder, giving more, and making bigger sacrifices. His negative attitude toward me will stay the same regardless. It’s about him, not about me. To put matters starkly: it is impossible to have a healthy and satisfying relationship with a person who talks or looks down at you. He will have to either learn equality and respect or lose his place in my life. Christian friends are telling me forgive and forget. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Pray for him. you need to be what Gods call you to be. Loving, as in 1cor. 13 you can't make any thing work no that's Gods job. You need to fix you eyes on Jesus and do what you are called to do. You need to obey God and leave all the Consequences to him. Been there done that with my ex husband who after I forgave the affiar ended up molesting our daughter. When is enough enough?
