I am having a strange tme - I don't feel as if they are up's and down's - more like I feel disconnected.
I have made no effort to contact my wife - I speak to my daughter every day and try to avoid discussing what is going on with her - I always ask how her mum is - I always get the reply "Fine"
My wife sent me an email a few days ago - she asked how I was, how my family were, some stuff about finances and about if I wanted to look after our daughter in half term or when my wife is away on business.
It was so cold and detached from what has happened - that is the only communication I have had since I left her.
I am not playing a game - it's not like I want her to talk first - it seems pointless to me if she shows no emotion or regret over what has happened.
I thought I was strong but I feel as weak as a kitten now - I have no desire to do anything.
I feel angry ather for not seeming to really care - and at the same time there is no way I would go back to her now - I know she needs to change her behaviour - before that is even considered.
I just feel stuck in a rut and cannot seem to motivate myself any way.
It sounds like she did agree to the arrangement with your daughter's visitation, which is a good sign. If the separation is working well right now I would say you are in a better place than just a few weeks ago and hopefully can gather strength and clear your mind in the days to come. You can also call a domestic violence hotline (they are aware of the % of male victims and know how to give you helpful advice and practical help)
It is also good to leave the decision to talk about the break up to your daughter- that way she can choose if she wants to bring it up or not. Keep up the good work and be kind to yourself.
