I am feeling so ashamed. My husband pushed me to the limit with his behavior last night and I reacted by breaking his cell phone and glasses. I also have bruises from tussling around with him. I have done pretty good in not reacting to him by breaking things until last night. Now I feel intense shame. He is probably very self-satisfied because he can now tell himself once again that I AM THE PROBLEM. I don't break things out of spite, it is out of sheer frustration. Try talking to someone who literally won't talk! He is passive-aggressive and he withdraws, sulks, shuts his eyes, goes to another room, etc. OR if he is in the aggressive mode, he will make a sarcastic or smart-ass comment to set me off. Sometimes I wonder if he is trying to get me to leave him. Scott Wetzler, in his book "Living with the Passive-Aggressive Man has said that men like this can drive their significant others to do this type of behavior (breaking things, etc.) I don't want to be like this. I feel ashamed. I'm tired of it all. I want some peace. I'm tired of feeling bad about myself, unloved, out of control.
