37year old woman wanting to go OTR
When I was married previously it was to a truck driver. I was OTR with him for nearly 9 yrs on and off. I've now since separated and am now in another relationship going on 3 years now. He has 2 small children, both in school.
I had mentioned before that I could get my CDL and bring in more money, that we would be able to get out of our financial slump and get ahead. We've struggled financially the entire time we've been together. Nearly got evicted from our first home.
The kids are a handful, I won't lie. Ive not been able to work due to him not wanting to leave work to take care of anything involving the children. Ive sacrificed and I am yearning to get back out there but ON MY OWN, not with a partner..simply solo. I just want a good paying job.
I'm not getting any younger. Anything I can find around here just doesn't pay. We are barely paycheck to paycheck..Immediately after mentioning this he said, "that ain't gonna happen". So now i've looked into it again and am even trying to arrange a sitter so his job wont be affected.
What should I do? I feel like I'm being forced to live a certain life and not being able to move forward. Thanks..
