…n’t snap myself out of my depression partly because I knew that if I had a baby, he would leave me. Worse yet, I realized that I had fallen in love with an incredibly selfish man whom I wouldn’t be able to count upon for genuine support.
Yup. Not to diminish your experience, but a lot of us have happened into the unfortunate trap of falling for a completely selfish man who can’t be counted on. He doesn’t wanna work; he doesn’t want to be responsible or take responsibility; he would rather lean on his parents than make life decisions for himself; no coping skills; incapable of being an adult simply because they petulantly don’t wanna be one. The moment things “get real” they panic and leave us to be the adult. And they wonder why we treat them like big kids. There are just too many of them out in the wild these days.
