He’s Mad Because I Used My Own Money

DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,

Good morning to you and your fans. God bless you for your good works.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for two years now. I’m 20 and he’s 23. My mom is a single mother who took care of me all by herself so I took after her and always try to provide for myself without asking anyone else for help.

Last month, I found out that I was pregnant. We decided to get rid of it because of my schooling and had to find money which thankfully I got by helping someone. I used the money to buy the drug and got rid of the pregnancy without telling my boyfriend. I decided to wait till he got the money before telling because he was then owing his landlord.

Later when he brought the money, I told him but he got mad saying it was his duty to get the money and not me. He went on to say that I make him feel incompetent and that I never allow him to do anything for me. He got angry, left and since then has stopped picking my calls.

It was never my intention to make him feel this way. I was just being me and that is providing for myself like I always do. Please how do I explain this to him?
