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?

“I’m lonely.” It’s a phrase we’ll be hearing more and more as shelter-at-home and self-isolation orders become the norm throughout many countries. However, loneliness is nothing new, and it’s perfectly normal to feel that way—roughly 10% of young people aged 16 to 24 feel lonely either “often or always" as reported by an English survey conducted by the Office for National Statistics. In adults aged 65 and older, 3% still reported frequently feeling alone.
While we can’t guarantee that you’ll be out of isolation anytime soon, we can at least urge you to take care of yourself and manage your loneliness with the following tips:
Use your alone time wisely.
Despite the collective loneliness, we will undoubtedly feel at various points throughout the quarantine necessitated by the Coronavirus pandemic, giving purpose to our time alone is one of the best ways to encourage a sense of fulfillment and make the most of the time by ourselves.
Focus on positivity.
When you’re feeling isolated, it’s easy to find yourself down in the dumps before you even realize you’ve taken a dive. Now, more than ever, it’s critical to focus on the positive aspects of life as the news is flooded with ghastly news of the Coronavirus pandemic.
When necessary, take a break from the news and instead watch your favorite movie or read an inspiring book. Try mindfulness meditation, or you might consider making a list of things you are thankful for.
Stay productive, even if it’s just the little things.
Knowing what to do when you feel lonely is far from an easy task, and it’s often overwhelming enough that we end up doing little more than lying in bed or aimlessly browsing our favorite streaming service. However, staying productive will tremendously lift our spirits, even if that means just taking care of simple chores around the house.
