I am 53 years old and was in an abusive relationship physically and mentally.
I still feel it was my fault as there were many times that i would keep arguing with himas i was so frustrated and angry with him for swearing or hitting me but new i always in the end had to back down. Should i have just not said or done anything.
Hi always said i pushed buttons and pushed him to the point of him hitting me. He had no remorse but just said i did not no when to stop. I am having counselling to try and come to terms with things. He says i did not no how to treat a man and things changed alot when i started standing up to him and sometimes the only way i could do that was call him or text him when i was not with him in the day as then i new he could not hit me. My anger towards him made me shout at him, but he used to tell me off for that.
