We have the occasional fight ever now and then, but things usually get resolved.
However, yesterday i was on top of him, laying on the couch, when we started to get into a fight. He ended up pushing me off of him. It wasn't hard but i was shocked. And i fell kind of funny. I hit my knee. He apologized, but was still angry and he just didn't seem to think he did anything wrong.
Today my knee is swollen and hurts a lot. And my boyfriend came over and felt horrible. he's like i never meant to hurt you. I just wanted you off of me. He kept saying how he was the worst boyfriend ever and that he abused me and how he was incredibly sorry. He kept talking about how i should feel safe with him and mentioned that he loves me a lot.
I dont know how to feel right now. I always told myself if a boyfriend ever hit me i would leave him. Bu im so confused because I love him so much and i feel like he didn't mean to hurt me.
Advice? he's never done something like this before

Given the level of testosterone men have and by extension muscle, he has rhe physical power to seroiusly harm you even by accident, if he'd intended to hurt you, you'd be way worse off than you are, think hospitalized. He just wanted you off him and he reacted with adrenaline and you just happened to land badly, fix the knee and then fix your relationship, no relationship is without fights sometimes and maybe he should have been more gentle with you as you are more fragile than him, but if he meant to hurt you he'd have little to no remorse and you'd have a lot more than a chance landing on your knee. have him help you fix the knee and come up with a cover story if need be, it might help him feel less guilty, you mean the world to him and I'm sure he would seriously consider risking his life for you if it came down to it.

It was more of an accident than abuse because you got your knee hurt cause you fell pn the floor not because he hit you there. Sounds like he really just wanted you off him
