My story in a nutshell... we have 2 children together, 2 and 4, and while the dad is not a monster, he has these outbursts of aggression and threatening... this has never developed into anything physical, yet i feel fear. We are currently separated and he has moved out, however he is still hanging onto hope we will get back together and every time i try clarify its truly over he has these 'rages' and then later he cools down. I don't know what my ultimate fear is, but at the moment i am too scared to tell him there is absolutely no hope, even though in my heart there isn't. Also for the children's sake. I am sure i am not the only one who has ever felt so threatened and fearful... but how have other people overcome this?
I need help... feeling weak and like a loser..
