Rosie Advises: Toxic relationship

I love my boyfriend, but sometimes he gets totally angry at the stupidest things and then yells at me and sometimes even scares me. He never hit me or anything and he never would, but I don’t know how much more of this I can take. What should I do?

Well…it seems to me that you’re in a toxic (and I would even go as far as saying abusive) relationship. You didn’t mention how long you’ve been with this person, but I don’t think this would be something that would change with time. I was in a relationship with someone who was very negative, towards everything. I also didn’t believe he would ever hit me “or anything”, but when he once pushed me so hard I fell (after we’d broken up and were just friends) I decided to get the heck out! 

I’m not telling you to break up with your boyfriend, because that is something only you can decide for yourself, because you’re the one in the situation. I will, however, say I don’t like the sound of him! I would advise you to re-think your relationship. Even if you love him, and I believe you do, no man is worth you getting hurt! You should seek help, if you think you cannot do this on your own. I know many cities have places where you can reach out for help or you could even ask in your school or community if there is a place to help you.
