hey everyone, i've been reading this part of the forum for the past few weeks and it looks like everyone has a really good head on their shoulders. i was hoping you might be able to give me some insight to my problem. the girlfriend and i have been going out for a year and a half. she's madly in love with me and i am with her... at least i think i still am (which where the problem lies). over the past 3 weeks we've had a few of our worst fights ever where we've come really close to breaking it off. she has gotten past those fights, but for some reason i can't shake them from my memory and go on as if nothing happened. the "usual" (??) happened during the fights. lots of screaming and yelling, breaking stuff (mostly my stuff was broken), pushing... you know. i feel like i should just get past these doubts i'm having and try to be more like her. it's like she knows things are gonna get better. she tells me that she's just been really stressed out this semester (it's her last semester at school) and she's really sorry for being such a bitch. she's also a little too controlling in the way where everything needs to be perfect, and if it isn't she flips out (mostly on me). she is getting help for that and i commend her for that. now let's see: she's getting help, saying that the semester is making her really stress, she's sorry for taking it out on me and promises to work on her faults. sounds like a really great plan, but why can't i get past what has happened in the past and look towards a brighter future? i usually don't post things like this online, but i really at my wits end here. thanks everyone!
