This is a my personal life for almost 18 years and my continuing series of 1000 Reasons To Leave Him. The trick is to find out before it’s too late and not to close your eyes because you are blinded by how much you love him. Don’t let him use you, take advantage of you, or isolate you. Don't let him manipulate you into staying. Don't let him wear you down so that your self-worth becomes so low you feel like you have no choices. And don’t remain silent because you’re afraid.
1000 Reasons To Leave Him - Continued:
31. When the only serious collection he has accumulated during our relationship is porn magazines.
32. When one of his past boyfriends calls me and tells me that he knows every private detail of my life, including family members names, my private finances, everywhere I have lived, and more.
33. When he loses his job and you arrange a new job for him. Years later, you find out that his favorite type of customer service was having unprotected sex in the back office with guys off the street.
34. When I'm in the hospital for five days and the total amount of time he visited me was less than one hour.
35. When the only book you ever saw him finish was the life story of Joey Stefano, gay porn star.

Today's Advice: A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words! - So I guess hundreds of pictures are worth a million. And are the voice recordings worth even more?
Continued after the jump:
Finding out all the nasty details during the last months before it was over, learning the specific names of people, the places, what they did, and much more, was extremely overwhelming. The seriousness of his lies and deception, and the lengths that he and some of his boyfriends were willing to go, to destroy my life and to destroy other families, makes you wonder – who was this person I lived with?
You’ll find that many of my 1000 reasons are written with some sarcastic humor and some are so unbelievable that not an ounce of humor could be attached. However, they’re all based on real life, a really long relationship with a really wrong person. Trying to understand what happened may not be easy, and the recovery from a long, abusive, deceptive relationship is a difficult journey.
Putting your thoughts in print is empowering. So, read them, talk about them, or laugh or cry about them. Share them with someone you know that could possibly use them. But, I think you’ll agree, they should never happen again, not to me, not to you, and especially not to anyone that you profess to truly love.
