How do I fix a marriage after cheating??
My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
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?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them
Lost and confused at a crossroads
My boyfriend and I have been together for seven years now. We have had a very tumultuous relationship both of us have hurt each other very much on each parts. But he’s done a lot more wrong it has no accountability.

What should I do?
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
Lockdown had a huge impact on many people's mental health as well as their relationships. The dynamics of being told you cannot go out and have the freedom you once had is not what humans were created for, but it had to be enforced due to the pandemic.
But after so long being in lockdown, now we are preparing to come out of it and try to go back to some kind of normality, which can open another can of worms. Suddenly, it is not just you and those you live with (if you do not live on your own), but it's plucking up the courage of being with others again and the question at the back of your mind is..."Is it ok to socialise safely with this person?"
This and many other questions will come up as we begin a new regime of connecting with others again and building interaction without hiding behind the screen.
If you are struggling with the thought of 'heading back out' don't worry, you are not the only one. There are many who are feeling the same. The anxiety of 'all change' again can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be.
Add to myWE:
Remember, as I said above, you are not alone. There are many who feel the pain with you and we are all adapting to this new kind of 'norm'.
So what would my advice be to you if you are struggling?
Take one day at a time. Interact at your own pace and don't push yourself. Maybe go for a walk with one person you haven't seen when in lockdown and build up from there until you feel comfortable to start growing your social outings.
Don't forget the internet is still there and many groups and businesses will still be running things virtually, so maybe try and balance things out at the beginning until it gets easier and easier.
You are in control of this, so allow yourself the time and the space to take each day as it comes and soon you will back on track.
One extra note - Do not feel pressurised to go all in just because some others have. You are not everyone, you are you. Respect and value how you feel and do it in your own time.
