I try to make friends, and to make my relationships work.

My BF always criticizes me when ever i do anything wrong, I do my best to keep him happy because i failed at past relationships. i did wrong, but with him i'm trying to do right, to make it right.I just find that he doesn't know how to deal with me, which is okay, I understand that he has to talk his frustrations and stress out too, but it usually comes out as an insult, and i remind myself that he's only human. I am very fortunate to have him though. And i am fortunate that i am willing to better myself and to make up for my mistakes. I guess that we need to talk more, and discuss what i'm going through, so he has a better understanding of how I'm coping, and feeling.

Yes, having a good talk to explain how you're feeling sounds like a good idea. I know that we all have stresses and frustrations but it sounds very unfair of your BF to release his by criticising or insulting you. It's very easy to feel beaten down and like a failure if this happens too often.

I think you should perhaps consider that he too is lucky to be in a relationship with you.

I hope you manage to straighten things out. Take care.
