Spouse filled with resentment over my outbursts
In the past year, I have had over 8 anger outbursts that have gotten physical with my husband. Granted some of them were influenced by alcohol but many were a fight that had gotten way out of hand, sending me into an emotional and phyiscal rage against my husband. At first, my husband would find it in his heart to forgive me. Now after the last 2 episodes, he has built a wall of resentment that separates us. He doesn t know how to get over it and trust that now that I am on medicine, I can control my outbursts, granted it does still scare me that I will have another one and this time it will end our marriage. How do I help my husband stop the resentment? How do I help him trust that it will not happen again? Any tips on overcoming resentment in a marriage? We still love each other but between the wall of resentment and my fear of having another outburst, we are very distant and desperate for guidance.
