I’m Jealous of My 5 Year Old

Dear Auntie Abena, 

How are you? Hope you and your fans are doing well. Please I need serious help because I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m jealous of my 5 year old daughter.

My husband and I have been married for 7 years and we have a 5 year old daughter. My husband is a good father but has been a bad husband to me. There is something which I need help with. I feel it’s crushing our marriage and the love from my daughter to me is gradually fading away.

Now to the main issue

For the past 3 years, my husband hardly pays attention to me. All of his attention goes to our daughter. He buys her gifts and takes her out leaving me alone at home. He gives her kisses on her cheeks while I get none and even eats with her. Anytime I complain that he doesn’t pay attention to me, he will tell me our daughter comes first. That he wants to give her the best since he didn’t have that as a child

I have no problem with that but at least there should be some left for me. Auntie Abena, my daughter will never eat until the dad comes from work and they will eat together. Anytime I try to join, they’ll move away and sit somewhere chatting and laughing. My husband will play around with my daughter but will not do same with me. We can sit and not chat for hours but as soon my daughter comes then my husband will give her the best attention.

Auntie Abena, honestly it got to a time I started scolding her for no reason and anytime I did that I felt so unhappy. This issue became worse when it got to our daughter’s birthday. We share the same birth month (October). Mine is on the 20th and hers is 25th October

On 20th October, my husband wished me happy birthday and that’s all. Before, he used to give me gifts and we’d have a good time but for the last three years nothing. On our daughters birthday, this 25th, wow come and see gifts from my husband, parties with her friends and after that he took her out for a good shopping.

My husband bought a brand new Toyota Camry and said that was for our daughter. That was when I got hurt. Please I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I feel it’s getting worse. Each day my husband ignores me for our daughter. Please all I need is equal attention and that’s all.

I complained about how I was ignored on my birthday and asked why he bought a car for our daughter. He could have bought one for me so that we could own it together. That day I didn’t get easy from my husband.

He insulted me well well and called me names that I’m a witch and and a possessed jealous wife. Auntie Abena, I was so sad. I feel my husband is not being fair to me. Since then it has even worsened. My husband doesn’t even talk to me anymore. I have apologized for complaining but still he doesn’t care about me.

Please I need advice because I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I love both of them very much. I just don’t know why I feel this way when my own daughter is treated better by my husband and I am totally ignored. Please I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
Is it normal or my husband might be right when he said I’m a possessed jealous wife?
I’m worried.
