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?

Has silent treatment become the norm? Save your relationship now.
At some point or another, we’ve likely all experienced some form of silent treatment. Maybe our partners have refused to speak to us during times of conflict, or maybe we’ve done the same to them. But what happens when the occasional bouts of silence turn into something more sinister?
What is silent treatment?
Sure, we hear the term tossed around frequently, but what exactly is the silent treatment? It’s much more than just being quiet.
The silent treatment is a cease of communication in which one party refuses to speak to the other, even when a discussion is desired. Some people utilize this behavior as a poor coping mechanism when they’re upset, but others willingly use the silent treatment as a method of abuse. For example, some might choose to use the silent treatment as a way to guilt an innocent party into apologizing.
Add to myWE:
When the silent treatment becomes abuse.
Many of us don’t recognize how harmful it is to be a victim of silent treatment. In fact, research has shown that being ignored can be just as devastating as the experience of real, physical pain.
A further review of research investigating over 14,000 total individuals demonstrated that the silent treatment is “tremendously damaging” to relationships and that the pattern of silent treatment abuse can be very difficult to break.
With this in mind, it probably comes as no surprise that the silent treatment can become responsible for unresolved issues in a relationship. When someone ignores you and this bitterness is left to fester, relationships may be torn to shreds as couples are drawn apart with no communication to save them.
