Rebecca says her boyfriend of two years and father of their children, Josh, is a “controlling narcissist” and nothing she does is good enough for him. She says he tells her how to clean, suggests she have a cooking schedule and make her “me time” going grocery shopping.
“He always makes me feel like I’m doing the wrong thing,” Rebecca says. “He yells at me when I want to do things for myself.”

However, Josh says he’s the “breadwinner” and Rebecca is the “housekeeper” and she needs to work harder at her job.
“When I get home from work, I would love a meal. She’s got ample time to organize a feeding schedule for a family and she doesn’t even make a grocery list,” Josh says. “When my daughter sleeps, she sleeps. Rebecca should utilize that time to worry about the toiletries, to take inventory of her house.”
