Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

We see it in the news on a regular basis - individuals in a reputation crisis, both personally and professionally. It happens nationally and locally. We also might occasionally see people not in the news but in our lives - family, friends, coworkers, etc. also in crisis. Yet do most people respond in a successful manner?
Reputation difficulty or crisis is not easy to admit to ourselves yet comfortable denial is not always intelligent, wise, protective or corrective of problems.
Yet that comfortable denial - or anxiety leading to analysis paralysis - is not decision making, whether conscious or subconscious that is helpful in the vast majority of situations. Evidence has proven that reputation crisis rarely just blows over, bypassing consequences.
Reputation crisis almost always, without question, has to be addressed wisely, morally, skillfully to problem solve, whether that being mitigating damage and consequences to significantly problem solving and retaining, restoring or rebuilding reputation so that you protect all the benefits of a healthy reputation and limit the pain of a damaged or wrecked one.
Add to myWE:
Moving towards that problem solving and relief is an emotional hurdle to jump over, an unknown door to walk through yet when we exhibit skill in stress management for increased poise and then engage in our strongest level of courage, we can think more clearly and effectively, considering the solutions that will come with protection and correction of our difficulty, conflict or crisis.
Think risk management of your desired, best life. Don't allow fear or denial or minimizing the severity of the situation lead to false beliefs and substandard or poor decision making, Many people struggle to overcome badly damaged reputation when it was always possible to take corrective and protective measures and problem solve successfully.
