Subject: Tired Of Being A Fool
Dear Shirley & Steve,
I have been a fool long enough! I am a 28 yr old-young woman who has bit off more than I can chew. At the young age of 18 I got married to a guy that I knew wasn’t gonna work. I went thru the relationship for 7 long ugly abusive years. I decided to get out of the relationship about 3 years ago. Sadly my way of getting out of the relationship was to turn to another man. BIG mistake well the person I decided to be with was a person that I have known all my life we grew up together as close family but we are no kin. We dated for about 1yr and a half and I found out we were pregnant! He was so excited to know that we was about to have a child, about 7months into the pregnancy. I discovered he had another woman pregnant but not only that they had been in a relationship for about 8yrs!!! I never knew of this young lady. Since all this crap had hit the fan I decided to have the baby and move away and I did just that. I even moved out-of-state because it was just to embarrassing to me to have to swallow this pill dealing with this DOG A** person. Well even tho I did all these things moving stop talking to him, he always manages to end up back in my life. Yes I know he is still with this other person although he lies and say that they are not. He is here in my state at least 4 times a month and he sends for me at least 2 times a month. This man has a 10yr age gap on me and the other girl and he’s using the both of us but the only 2 who doesn’t get along is me & her. It’s like we take turns with him its sick and embarrassing! I know I can’t keep being a fool I deserve so much more but I just don’t have a clue where to start. Please give me some insight because I am to embarrassed to talk to my dad about this. He would never imagine I was living a life-like this! -It’s ok to be a fool, but a I’M TIRED OF BEING A BIG FOOL!
