As you've realized, parenting is an awesomely complex task, and many parents, thopugh they do their best, don't understand most of what is happening. They may give their kids what they assume the kid needs, without necessarily understanding what indeed is actually needed.
Your message isn't always clear, for instance, about who was the role-model you fel you discovered --- was it your biological mom ? I was puzled, too, to read that " My problem is that I am not becoming more and more dissatisfied with my life. " Did you mean the problem is that you ARE becoming increasingly dissatisfied ?
You have decided that your husband doesn't make you happy as a person --- do YOu make him happy as a person ?
Wouldn't in be very wise to minvest time and effort in marriage counselling, as well as in personal counselling, to make sure that it is real coffee you are smelling ? And actual cofee beans, rather than granules of Instant ? I strongly suspect that the sense of disatisfaction that is troubling you is deep-seated and complex, and may have little to do with your husband or marriage. And if you don't clarify that, and work it through, you are likely to walk out of this marriage, causing unhappiness to your husband and children --- and have very similar problems with any future relationships or marriage. Maybe the mediocre marriage can be tranformed into a satisfying one. But at the very least you owe it to both of you to explore this posibility, and to work through and understand the issues involved, rather than walking out hastily, with the same recipe for dissatisfaction the firstn thing that got packed in your bag.
Excellent responses from Jason and Susie.
