So lost, boyfriend and practically life partner of 3 years hit me last night. He blames me for it. What can I do?(r/TwoXChromosomes)
Get out. Get out now, and go somewhere he doesn’t have knowledge of, or the means to reach.
His abuse is textbook. He is escalating. Your independence, and failure to yield to him in all things will only serve to justify greater violence in his mind. He will escalate the use of psychological and physical abuse as he sees necessary to “break” you, and make you submit to him. He can do this because he sees you as something that he owns, something that should be subservient to him.
If you’re interested in remaining a free-willed human being, and alive/out of the hospital, get out. Do not come back until you have your squad to help you move your stuff.
