My husband is a good man. He comes with anger issues that are impossible for me to work through on my own. Where does his anger stem from? Every counselor I’ve spoken to says it stems from childhood. When I ask him, he doesn’t know.
What options do we have to help him control his anger? Especially when it becomes physical.
I almost called the cops the last time. I never have and this last time is still taking a lot for me to process. I’m constantly finding myself crying alone, unsure what to do. I don’t go to the cops for the following reasons…
- I don’t think jail is going to be good therapy for his anger. I want to help him, not punish him.
- He’s a good father and if I go to the authorities he may not be able to see our children. He attacked me while I was holding our 1 year old and directly in front of our 4 year old.
- I love him despite this.
Call me dumb. Call me stupid. Call me whatever you like. I know this is wrong. I know that it is not my fault and I know it is not ok.
So what other options do I have? I feel like I have none. And I have no one to talk to about it. I have only myself.
I wish the right thing to do would just happen. Unfortunately life doesn’t work that way.
Oh boy. What am I to do? I find myself constantly debatin if I should just go the police route. And then I see him. Beneath the anger and the violence I still see the man I fell in love with. The man I’ve always loved. He’s still there beneath the surface.
