If the punk ass wants to leave you, let the motherfucker walk away. When it comes to suicide, the people who threaten to kill themselves have a low chance of doing so. The ones who don't talk about it are the ones who have a high likelihood to do it. When a guy threatens to leave you, he's doing that to make you fearful.
He wants to give you the fear of losing him so that you can chase him. Make this a rule for the rest of your life: don't ever chase a guy who is walking away from you.
I understand situations where you have kids and he is the only provider. That's more of a dilemma instead of a situation. Both of your choices seem dire. If you were in that situation, I would plan your escape long-term. Plan your independence and stay quiet.
When you're in a situation where you can't walk away, use your weakness as a strength. Use your weakness as a way to keep him there while you build yourself up in the background.
If you're not in that situation, then he's walking away. It doesn't matter how much you like that guy. You have to let him walk away. Don't even try to pursue him. Don't even try to let him come back.
If they want to come back, they have to let go of their ego. They have to swallow their pride to come back to you.
A lot of women let a guy come back happy like nothing happened. Bitch, no. Make that guy pay for coming back. Make him pay for leaving you. Find a way to make him pay. Make him do something that he doesn't want to do.
If you don't make him pay the price, he's not going to appreciate you as much. Sometimes you have to be a savage. You want to put a price on yourself. This way, he knows that if he ever wants to walk away, there is a price for doing it.
