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 is the true definition of a relationship?
Is it an avenue to getting laid whenever? or is it to build a bond between two people who find each other attractive mentally and physically?
All these are just but wild guesses.
Yes, they make some sense, but none of them get even close to the actual definition. Its characters can only define a genuine love relationship.
A true relationship is based on understanding, where none thinks of himself only, one with automatic chemistry and above all one made of frequent arguments and instant make-ups to each.
On the other hand, the opposite is an unhealthy relationship, aka a "toxic relationship." A 'love doctor' once defined toxic relationships as bonds between two needy individuals. In the long run, it ends up being a union defined by parasitical behaviour.
What is a parasitic relationship, you may ask? In the animal world, parasitic relationships are victims and parasites in relationships, each with their degree of 'sickness.' In some cases, the situation is relatively mild that one can hardly notice that the relationship is toxic.
Add to myWE:
After the effects reveal themselves, they see the relationship is unhealthy, but it is usually too late by then. However, there are ways of escaping such relationships.
Once you find out that you are in a toxic relationship, the best thing to do is leave before it worsens. Some may feel that's too severe due to the bond that has been formed between the two. However, staying in a relationship as such can affect your mental health leading to trauma and depression.
Taking some time off to re-think things out can provide an ample amount of clarity for what's next for you. Preferably, take a few months to yourself. During this time, certain conditions you and your partner should adhere to include; not keeping in touch during this time, reset the clock once one of you goes against the agreement, write letters to each other exposing your feelings and present them after the period is over. Make sure that you meet in a very neutral area.
Come to a mutual agreement once you meet or agree to disagree. Make sure the two of you come to a deal during the final meeting. Hire a professional life coach to help you heal and bring things into perspective!
