Beautifulmonkey – The whole point of a relationship is to have mutual support. You should be able to expect him to be supportive. There is nothing wrong with your expectations.

You are probably addicted to the relationship. This is not a criticism – all relationships with sociopaths are addictive. And when they treat you badly, it strengthens the bonds that you feel. So in that sense, yes, you do need to do some work on yourself so that you can disengage.

But there is absolutely nothing wrong with your basic expectations of support from him. Unfortunately, he will never meet those expectations. I recommend that you end the involvement. It will never get any better.
