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?

Single, ordinary drinking glass of water when vaporized can create a blanket of fog that can cover a square acre at least 3 feet deep. Imagine a fog so thick, you couldn't see past your nose.
Every tall, stately oak tree produces a rain shower of acorns that vary in size from 1/4 inch to over 2 or 3 inches, depending on the species. A Red Oak tree will reach a height of 60 to 70 feet and a spread of 40 to 60 feet from one acorn.
Water does not boil until it reaches a temperature of 212 degrees F°, which means at 211 degrees, it's just hot.
What do all of these things have in common? At first, they start out small and seemingly insignificant. But when activated, can produce phenomenal results, bigger than we can imagine.
An oak tree showers acorns because the majority of them are stolen and eaten by other animals. If an acorn doesn't fall to the ground, it can't do what it's designed to do. That oak tree at maturity is capable of providing enough lumber to create awesome shelter or make some really nice furniture.
Add to myWE:
At 212 degrees F°, water boils, which creates steam, which can then produce electricity, or power a steam engine, or cook macaroni. And it only takes a drinking glass of that water to fog almost an entire city block.
Little things can produce big results. This is true in nature, as well as in our lives. What we may think is an insignificant smile can change someone’s day in a very impactful way; You just don’t realize it. Opening a door for someone or sending a “thinking of you" note can have impactful and lasting impressions.
The teenage boys that I mentor on Sundays at church had an assignment to write “thinking of you” notes to elderly people that could not get out of their house for whatever reason. Most wrote letters back saying what a joy it was to receive and read those letters.
I read a quote once that said “You can't do common things and expect uncommon results.” I beg to differ. You can do common things and expect uncommon results, as long as those things are done consistently.
Think about writing a book for example. What an overwhelming task! Who could ever dedicate themselves to that! However, if you write a page a day, you have written 365 pages, which is a pretty thick book!
If you drink one extra glass of water a day, you have already dramatically improved your health. Most people drink between 2 and 3 cups of water per day, not including soda drinks or coffee. The benefits of drinking water include better moods, better-looking skin, weight loss, helps with digestion and reduces cramping in muscles just to name a few.
If you get one more hour of sleep per night, you’ve helped to improve your memory and mood, as well as appetite and stress.
If you take stairs rather than elevators or escalators, you've just exercised and reduced the risk of heart disease.
The opposite can be said as well. For example, let's say you decide to stay up later than usual. The next day you feel like crap and you just want to get through the day. Or you don't get up at all and sleep in. Now the next night you can't sleep, so you stay up too late again.
When you start to chip away at the little things that make you productive; I.e. sleeping right, eating right, exercising, you begin to fall into this downward spiral until you get to the point where you either just give up, or you have to make a significant change. And that's painful. I've been there.
Making what seems to be small and insignificant changes today, can produce dramatic results over time. Practicing small steps at first helps build confidence in taking bigger steps later.
You'll get there.
