This is the most important thing, Jim. We cannot control how others treat us, except in the acceptance of said treatment.
All we can ever really do? Is take care of ourselves, remember that we are also human with wants, desires, and needs. If those are not being met in the form of the person we have selected to share our lives with, then we are, in the end, not being true to ourselves, we are not being kind to ourselves, and that we must not allow.
If you aren’t kind and caring of yourself, you cannot expect anyone else to be so to you either.
Forgive yourself for your past mistakes, and move forward with a new knowledge and care.
You deserve it. ❤
