Hypocrites # 2 faces and denial #

From a toddler until i left my marriage and everywhere in between i experienced violence. My parents n step parents abused me physically, psychologically and emotionally. My dad denies his wife n he actually assaulted me from the 2 or 3 yrs of age. She would put me in hot baths, wake me up n put me outside n tell dad i was sleep walking. She told him i always called her an sl.t and one day dad flogged me. He blacked out.
My step father a so called Christian man who is now with wife number 5 would take his cowboy belt off n flog me from the age of 4 until 8. The belt had a steel buckle with a blue rhinestone in the middle. To this day he can still induce fear in my heart n cause anxiety the likes of which i have some control over but not enough when i see him. My mum the quintessential welfare worker. Preaching a good game at work only to return home drink, smoke pot, gamble n always in need of male company. The joke or not is that when she had male company my siblings n i were safe but after they left or she didnt get her way my sister and i were bashed with fists n whatever implement she could find. #denial #violence #2 faces. My sister n i fled as soon as we could. I married a women who was amazingly similar to mum. Physically, emotionally, verbally, financially abusive. # 6mths after we got married i had my 1st hospital admission n i would spend #24 .5 weeks in hospital in 18 mths. My treatment team which included nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists and 2 ward doctors recognised the signs of # Spousal abuse i lived with. They said i would either end up suiciding or yo yoing between home n hospital if i didnt leave. The positive to come of all of this is i left my wife, started a new life and have avoided abuse for 7 yrs.

I recently broke up with an ex… we have a toxic relationship, he has cheated on me(emotionally) in the past but since we got back together he’s been really trying. He just has controlling and manipulative habits and I found it hard to trust him after he consistently spoke to his ex for 2/3 years of our relationship.

Now, I have another ex and our relationship was great. We only broke up because of his family being unsupportive. He was my first boyfriend.

Although I’ve broken up with ex #1 he still hopes there is a chance and I haven’t crushed it entirely .
With Ex #2 I always felt like he was the one that got away.
Both of them want to take me out for my birthday and reignite romantic relationships but I feel so bad.
And confused.
I don’t want to be with ex #1 but I lived with him for 2 years and I can’t stand to not be around him. I’m finding it hard to cut ties with him as I am also very close to his family.
But ex #2 is so amazing and we have always had an amazing connection. He’s under the impression that ex #1 and I have been broken up for months. I’m scared to lose him when I tell him the truth .
I feel like I’m juggling both of them and I hate that I’ve put myself in this position. I feel really horrible as I don’t enjoy playing with peoples emotions. I have bpd btw so maybe my reluctance to let them both go is just my fear of abandonment.
Any advice for me?
