My ex-girlfriend (of 11 months) started a fight by being saying a few mean and hurtful things when she wasn't feeling well (she has PMDD). She can be hypercritical and mean sometimes. I got upset, exasperated and yelled for the first time in front of her. I told her I did not want to be her whipping boy and that she sometimes makes me feel like an idiot. I also said a few swears, but not towards her. I was also not physically aggressive towards her. I apologized profusely several times over the course of the next 3 weeks and she could not forgive me or move past it. Eventually we broke up. We had been in love and talked about our future together. I hate myself and never wanted to act that way. I've ruined the best thing in my life.
I accept that she can make that decision for herself of breaking up. It just hurts so bad, and I feel like I took all the blame for a mutual fight because I yelled (which I regret so much). I tried to have healthy communication afterwards to apologize and fix it. She did not care to give me another chance. I wanted to know if other people thought about this situation.

No , I wouldn't leave him, , because people often respond that way when they're upset.
People often say and do things in the heat of the moment when they feel angry , upset or hurt. They make hasty decisions too , which they later regret.
As long as they both resolve their issues or at least come to a compromise that's the most important thing. Plus, they should strive to change how they respond to each other when they are upset so they don't fuel the situation and exacerbate each other's anger0
