My abusive and controlling partner of twenty years, locked my out of our jointly owned home. I have since had to fund alternative accommodation from my savings, he hasn’t let me have any contents, I’m sixty this year.
Our daughter who is 18 has stayed with her father and I have only seen her once in 6 months, we live very close to one another. He has not encouraged her to meet me, I have texted her but she ignores my texts. Our daughter is quiet, sensitive, shy, does not socialise, does not make friends easily, has a monotone voice, no hobbies or interests other than school work which she excels at. She has never called me Mummy, never shouted out my name or his for that matter. I met her the other night, we spent the evening together. She didn’t asked how I was, she did not ask where I lived, did not ask me anything about my well-being. I’ve texted her since and she has ignored me. I do feel that she is enjoying this cruel game with me and I also feel that he is now controlling her. How can I tap into her?
How can I get her to talk to me? How can I make her feel she is safe and okay? I feel that I am losing my daughter.
