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?

What do I do?
I'm not sure what to do. Recently separated mom with 2 young girls and pregnant with my 3rd.

My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
if the person is drowning in pain and struggle...they still need to take that small baby step towards helping themselves heal.
Sometimes I wonder why someone would not reach out and take th
We should all have a slice of it from time to time, but it is not an easy thing to swallow. Once upon a time, when I served people who were homeless at the Portland Rescue Mission… I had had a terrible day at work; the teacher in the classroom where I was working didn’t like me and had it in for me. She had been all over me that day, and I was very upset.
As I made my way through the crowd, that was waiting to get into the Mission to get a hot meal, I was practically crying. When I reached the cafeteria, I started wiping down the tables and putting out bread, like usual. I went over to one of the tables and a man came over to me. He looked at me and said “Miss, I don’t know what happened to you today, but I want you to know, that I am going to pray for you.”
He was going to pray for me. Compared to the man, I had everything: an apartment, food, a car, and a family that loved me.
He was going to pray for me…
Just the sheer kindness of it blew me away. I had no idea who he was, and he didn’t know me either. He was going to pray for me, a stranger, from one person to another. He saw that I was suffering, and he wanted to help me in the only way that he could.
That one “golden” and kind act has stuck with me for many years now. I will never forget it. It really affected me, he who had nothing was praying for me, who had everything…think about that…I had a difficult day because my boss was snarky and mean to me. For him, I am sure a bad day means something entirely different. It could mean that: there was no room in the shelter for him to sleep, it could mean no food or clean water, it could mean that someone beats him up and steals a few of his meager belongings, and that is just to start.
Some people make a game out of increasing the plight of the homeless. They are taunted, stolen from, beaten up, raped, and “moved on.” Where do they “move on” to when they are ousted from their current “safe haven.?” I have often thought about that man, and I’ve wondered what happened to him. Was he one of the lucky few who was able to work through their problems and get back on his feet?
In that one moment, he was just a good and kind man-reaching out in grace to give me a wonderful “present”. When his homelessness and poverty fell away and all the richness of my life fell away and we were just two people, he gave me all that he had, his faith and a prayer for me.
In case you are wondering “what one person can do” remember my story. Remember that how much or little we have, we always have the choice to be kind to one and other. That one act has become a part of my story, and the lesson stuck with me. So, when you are kind to someone, “you” don’t know how far and long the effects of it can last. It can change your outlook and I think that the world can become a better place.
