Her aggression and fights are only there to tell you that she needs help, and help in this case is outside you two — therapy, friends, new experiences. The next day be told me he had realized he was in love with me a few weeks prior and that night had cemented it. Ive told him I will stand by him regardless but this mess is just too much!

Lots of childhood trauma came out during our counselor trips that he has actually started to by himself as well. She tried attempting suicide few times. It was too much emotional upheaval for me and I was miserable. But anyway my final years at high school were hard because of all the family shit, I spent a lot of time staying at my best friends house which affected me a lot negatively too because I had a dependence and envy for her that really damaged my self esteem even more. After he realised how devastating those words had on me, he took off and very nearly succeeded in taking his own life. She came over this afternoon and we talked and she calmed down a little bit.
