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?

During time of doubting yourslef, you will be overwhelmed with all negative thoughts and behaviours such as reluctantly to seek treatment, feeling worthlessness, helpless and even having low self esteem. In this situation, there are some ways you can do such as:
Seek a proper treatment - You may deny the need of having treatment. Do not let the fear of being labeled with a mental illness prevent you from seeking help. Treatment can provide relief by identifying what's wrong and reducing symptoms that interfere with your work and personal life
Add to myWE:
Psychotherapy - Psychotherapy is the therapeutic treatment of mental illness provided by a trained mental health professional. It explores thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and seeks to improve an individual’s well-being. For certain mental problems, it has to be paired with medication in resulting in more effective way to promote recovery. Examples include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, etc.
Don't isolate yourself - If you are affected by mental illness, you may be unwilling to tell anyone about it. Your family, friends or members of your community can offer you support if they know about your mental illness. Reach out to people you trust for the compassion, support and understanding you need. Look for a counselor to assist you.
Do not equate yourself with your illness. - Do not keep your give yourself a label. You are not an illness and there are ways to handle your problems.
Join a support group - A support group is a group meeting where members guide each other towards the shared goal of recovery. Support groups are often comprised of nonprofessionals, but peers that have suffered from similar experiences.
The above lists can goes on but nothing can get done if you are not willing to move forward. Believe in yourself and get proper treatments in order to improve your quality of life and overcoming your obstacles, your future lies in your hands. I strongly believe as a counselor, I am able to bring you forward in managing and handling your situations to a recovery path in the near future.
