You have to take this one day at a time – like an addict. Because that’s what you are right now. One more drink, one more roll of the dice, one more chance at this relationship and this time it will all work out. It won’t. You two have proven that over and over and over. A healthy relationship isn’t that hard. You work through the hard times together, you don’t cause one another the hard times.

You may love this person, but you aren’t acting like it. He set some pretty clear boundaries and you keep crossing them.

Time apart is not going to change this situation. You need to learn how to be ok being alone. You as an individual need to learn how to communicate better and manage your emotions instead of getting into physical altercations then lashing out at the people who are trying to support you.

It will get better over time, but you have to start living your life without this person.
