Does it count as physical abuse if my boyfriend has slapped me 2 times in 2 years relationship?

So my boyfriend of 28yr has slapped me 2 times in these 2 years out of anger. Those slaps were so quick and neither too hard nor too soft I mean I felt pain on my cheeks for some moment. The first time he did it I didn't understand say him anything, the second time he did it ( after a yr) I confronted him but he says he didn't slap me hardly and I didn't cry, my cheeks were not red.

And these kind of slaps sometimes are very normal in the relationship. He said its normal until he starts hitting me daily. I tried to make him understand that these things are not normal at all. But he didn't apologize for it until I discussed with him 2/3 times.

He told that I'm trying to make excuses to leave him and I'm making him feel insecure in this relationship. It's sad that he couldn't see that his slap made me feel insecure that's why I tried to discuss with him. He've given me threat, emotionally blackmailed me and said rude things to me but these were not on a daily basis they happened like once in a month or once in 2 months. Guys is this really normal? Am I really overthinking?
