I'm truly with a great guy, who is supporting me through nursing school and bought me a new car because I drive 80 miles one way to class and my truck left me on the side of the road one time too many. I love him! Truly do and not because he's supporting me, but because he is the one who makes me laugh and smile for no reason. But, how do I get past the trapped feeling of having to rely on him and the loss of my independence? I've never depended on anyone I supported my ex-husband for 6 years! How can I accept his help without fear without this failing feeling? It's starting to put a burden on my end of the relationship!
