I have been in a relationship for about 6 years. It has not been healthy. He is verbally abusive and I continue to stay thinking it will get better. He only has criticizing comments to make about me and how I need to improve myself. He always says that I need to figure out how to make him happy and once I make him happy, then I will be happy. He says he has to be happy first. I try and try to figure out what it is I do not to make him happy. I am always there for him when he needs me, but he is never there for me. Especially when I need him emotionally, he is not there for me at all. He says he knows that I am sad and upset, but if I could just figure out how to make him happy, then I would be happy. It drives me crazy because he dosent really give me any concrete answers on how we can work on this. He also always says if I would just listen to him and do things his way (not my way) then we can have a good life together. He says he is not trying to control me, but I am a terrible decision maker and he makes good decisions so he says it is always better his way. None of this makes sense to me and I really am trying, but feel I am standing in one place. Please help.
