rosie1121 Posted February 26, 2018 Share Posted February 26, 2018 Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm in desperate need of some advice. I have been with the same guy for 7 years, we have lived together for 6. I'll try my best to explain both sides to the best of my ability. He recently moved out because he said he did not feel appreciated or wanted. He said that because I did not help him with the housework, and that made him feel unappreciated. We have had this conversation many times throughout the 6 years we have lived together, and I always try to help as much as I can. However, I get up at 4am, feed/water/hay the horses and all the other animals, come back inside get ready for work, then I'm at work from 6-4pm, after my 45 min commute Im usually home by 5, and I have to repeat all mornings chores. I usually make it in the house about 630-7.. I am exhausted by the time I finally get inside. I get to as much as I can before it's time for bed. I also have had some issues with depression over the past few years, I feel like after 7 years I'm nothing more than a live in girlfriend. So that has drug me down quite alot, because I'm 30 years old and want more. I've been there or tried to be there for him since day 1. He makes good money so he's always provided financially for us. We've been very civil with one another, we have had dinner, and hung out he's even stayed the night. We have a horse that we have "together", hes registered in his name but he is still at the house. He pays me "horse boarding", which is the exact amount of our rent, and he's even left quite a few things at our apartment. I do have to say I could have done more, he works away so I have to take care of everything while he is away. I have kept all the yard work done, the animals taken care of, the bills, etc, Its just hard for me to keep up with EVERYTHING. Which I have slacked on our relationship because I began to feel like I was wasting my time. He says I am not being truthful with myself, and I don't understand the reasons he left. He suggested I speak to a therapist, which i have an appointment tuesday. I'm probably forgetting somethings but I can elaborate as it comes to me.
