Think past domestic abuse is ruining my current relationship

Default profile image
Hi. A few years ago I got out of a relationship where I was subjected to domestic abuse for 16 years. Since then I have got into another relationship which is so different than my last but I think my past relationship has left me so bitter in all aspects of life that it is beginning to ruin my current relationship and life in general. I am just waiting for the day my partner cheats on me, I seem to find fault in everyone, I anger easily and I am not liking who I have become :(

Get yourself to professional counseling if possible. You have voiced the reasons why you think you have become bitter with life. You're no good for anyone, let alone yourself, if you continue to feel the way you do. You need to deal with your past, accept it and then forget about it because your past is for learning from and not for living in.

Hi MANALONE. Thank you for your reply. I did have counselling when I initially got out of my abusive relationship and that did help but I'm guessing that moving on in life has brought other feelings and challenges and that is what I need help with now?
I know deep down inside I am a very caring, loving person and that for some reason I have turned into a monster who is destructive.
