A man I cared for said an awful thing to me and I cried. I did an awful and swung at him and slapped his arm hard. He yelled at me that he’d been joking, and choked me, threw me to the floor and kept shoving me to the floor while he was physically throwing me out. I kept trying to get up and apologize and he wouldn’t stop. He told me that he never wanted to see me again. We have a child together. I tried to apologize and fix things and he just ignored me. I was told that whereas what I did was wrong that what he did was worse, I don’t know how to handle this. Did he overreact? Am I entirely at fault?
