After hearing this information, I am starting to feel a lot better. It gave me many other perspectives of my situation and most importantly the very thing I need to do!
Past vs Present
Because of betrayal, I usually assume that my current partner's behavior is a sign of cheating, just because my ex did the same thing in the past, while in fact, maybe the situation is the same, but it occurs for different reasons. I shouldn’t generalize that the same behavior is always because of infidelity. Such as when he frequently likes other girls' pictures on Instagram. It may be just a random tap, not because he is interested in that girl.
I did nothing wrong. He had a problem. I wanted to work it out because the alternative would have been an explosion in our family!
