I just found this site tonight and am so grateful.My b/f is locked up and has been on and off for the past 11 years. In years past I haven't stood by him and we have gone our seperate ways. We found eachother again at the beginning of 2006. It was still pretty rocky. Long story short his probation got revoked and he's been sitting since Oct. 06'. I've stuck by him this time. We really love eachother a lot. He keeps extremely positive for both of us and I want to believe he's changed. But he's hurt me a lot in the past. I want to be with him more than anything, but I fear the past will repeat itself and I don't know how to let it go. I want to but then I feel taken advantage of by him because I do everything he asks cuz I know he has no other means. But when I ask something of him, it seems like he can never do it. Even something as simple as drawing me a picture( he's really good at it) but I get the excuses. There's other things, but basically I don't ask for much and he asks for everything. And this is some of what used to happen in the past. The only difference is this time I'm sticking by him in hopes that things will be better when he gets out this time around. So my question is, Am I wrong in telling him that I feel somewhat taken advantage of and he's proving to me that the past is going to repeat itself? It's been a cycle and I want to believe him. So how do I do that?
