During my session, I got to "Boundaries in Marriage" and realized I own the responsibility to my husband's temper tantrums in the past because I was afraid of conflict and felt too weak to change him. Now I could say I suffered and also was wrongly expecting my love to change him. Since this realization, I started to talk to him about my hurt feelings and disagreement of his attitude towards me and kids while he's unhappy. I asked him to change. He usually kept silent after what I said. Or got defensive. Sometimes he just shouted "yes, I am a bad guy!" Then walked away stormingly. Then he wouldn't talk to me for quite some time. Since I can't never get our discussion go deeper or without flooding from his side, I don't really know how to continue after such conversations. Shall I reach him out after he walked away stormingly? I don't think I am judging him or feel resentful. But I really want to do things which help our relationship grow towards a more healthy direction.
