No. And I have no intention of ever being proud of myself.

I sincerely wish that you have a husband who does not respond as I have. If my wife expects more of me, she is going to be disappointed. I don't care if I cut off my nose to spite my face. I get a payoff from her being disappointed that I never got while I was trying to succeed and trying to meet her needs. I am willing to sacrifice the rest of my life if it ensures that she remains as disappointed as I have been.

When you can see it coming, duck!
