tl;dr: I've been a terrible partner and I want to be better at handling my emotions
I greatly appreciate everyone's response to my previous post. I took everyone's advice and have tried to incorporate them as best as possible in the last week or so. I talked to my partner and I apologized to him for my behavior. I went to therapy last Saturday and it helped quite a bit, too. I'm not great at face to face conversations so I sobbed the entire time. I've only cried like this in front of him once so this was surprising to him. It was my birthday this past Monday so I am actually 24 now! We had a really great weekend away. There have been times this past week where I've found myself getting irritated or upset for no good reason so I took a few redditors' advice and I've started taking notes on my phone of what I'm feeling. It has helped me stay calm when I'm expressing my thoughts and emotions. I know I have a long road ahead of me and I'm so thankful for everyone's advice.
