Mormonism is a religion that's as manipulative as it is comforting. I walk on egg shells as well and feel like I am merely a maid, cook, nanny, etc I work to focus on the positive but the days are ing and lonely. I feel pretty awful about that whole thing.

Funny thing is he told me when we met that he was ready to stop focusing so much on work and start focusing more on his life. I know it is really hard for you and I'm sure it is hard for him too.

But i too am afraid to endure this.
