Not Sure What to Do

+ enlarge
 

I have been in a relationship with a guy for about nine years now. We do have a three-year-old daughter together and have lived together for about seven years. I find myself at a crossroad recently or I am just coming to my breaking point. He constantly lies to me about things that just really don’t matter. He normally doesn’t work in the winter (seasonal job where we live) and it stresses me out to no end because I become the sole provider for our family. He calls me names and breaks items when he is mad at me.

I’m not sure what to do anymore. I want to save my family and keep my little girl happy, but I’m not sure if I am happy myself. Whenever I try to talk about issues in our relationship (he really doesn’t want to discuss it). The most recent talk, I asked him to leave. He did leave but came back several hours later. I explained the next day that I could not live my life this way anymore. He told me that everybody he knew was miserable in their relationship, and I said I will not live that way for the rest of my life.

I spoke to my mother about all the stresses and lies and she offered me a free place to move home. It’s hard being thirty and have to admit failure. I want to make our relationship work, but I’m not sure if it’s a lost opportunity at this point. I am looking for some help and guidance.
