Calling people names and insulting them isn’t a form of love. When someone loves and cares for you – no matter how angry or upset they are – they don’t call you names, insult you, or blame you for their problems. They are good and kind to you ALL of the time not just some of the time. Blaming you for his failures is classic manipulative and abusive behavior. Wouldn’t you rather be with someone who genuinely respects you and cares about your feelings? It’s pretty obvious that you aren’t ready to leave this guy, but you should definitely look into some type of therapy to help build your self-esteem.
