I thought I wanted to vent out for a while, but then realized that wasn't really it. I tend to come off as accusatory and let my emotions get the best of me. He'll try to talk to me and I'll get defensive.
I'm actually getting scared of approaching anything for fear that I might start a fight. We've talked about how these fights exactly happen and what "triggers" me (this sounds so crazy). I am trying to set boundaries for myself and have asked his help for it, but I feel like I keep over thinking about everything I'm doing now.
I think if we get to a point where we haven't fought in a month, that would be a good thing. Just train myself to let things go.
