I get your concern over your debt; I was there and I hung in there with my daughter until it wasn't worth it anymore. I slowly paid off my debt and got the hell out. So, the only reason I stayed was to pay back my debt. Once that was established as my reasoning, all the other crap I was dealing with didn't matter anymore: it was going to be something that I would would to put up with for the time being.
There then came a time when his behaviour wasn't worth the debt I was trying to pay off and I left one day without notice. I learned that I can only change myself and if I'm not willing to put up with someone else's behaviour, then I shouldn't. Whatever not putting up with it means for you, will have to be determined by you.
What would you tell a friend if this was her post?
i would basically tell her the same thing tell her to get out...because it's not worth it to try to change someone when you have for them... but i would say the same thing that you have said..
