confused0812 Posted August 18, 2019 Share Posted August 18, 2019 As a child, I suffered emotional abuse from my family that lasted for years. When I began dating my boyfriend last year, I told him that I lived with a relative and in their house to avoid telling him the truth about my actual family. I feared that if I told him I lived with my parents he would quickly pick up on the fact that we don't have a healthy relationship, pressuring me to into telling him about the abuse that I only wanted to talk about with him once we were in a good position and I had mentally come to a place where I was able to. I recently came clean that I don't live with this relative, and live at my parents house instead, told him about the abuse, etc. He responded by saying he was breaking up with me because I lied to him about whom I lived with and in what house I lived in. I'm just very confused about this situation -- I agree that I should not have lied, but I feel he is in the wrong for making the situation about his feelings rather than me coming out with a very traumatic story that I finally decided to share.
