Well done on getting the job despite all the chaos and strife.
Have you told “himself” yet? My guess is it will go over his head until you are actually gone. Cutting the strings will set you free Logic. Who knows how it will affect him! Time will tell.
( By the way, if he gave you money to hold on to for the weekend, I would say stick to the plan he entered into with you. No games! )
I hope you enjoy the weekend and that the rain holds off.
Remember the boy is NOT your responsibility. Let his father look after him. I’m glad for your sake that you are moving on because you don’t want to look back in years to come and view yourself as a “prop”.
Your CG will have no choice but to act differently on some levels when you leave. The dynamics will certainly change for him.
If I were in your shoes I would leave none of myself behind (Easier said than done, I know, believe me!) Make a clean break by blocking him from your phone and cutting contact for the first few months at least. You need time and space to organize the next phase of your life. You have tried your best. It is not your fault that you didn’t see results for your efforts
Never blame yourself that he didn’t better himself on your watch.
A CG has the power to suck people lifeless.
I’m glad you are making a choice that will give you back control of your life .
Best wishes for a wonderful future, one day at a time.
