Avoiding Conflict Almost Killed Me

My husband has an explosive temper. For someone like me who hates yelling, it is kind of traumatic when he gets angry. So I bend over backwards to avoid fights. But after 9 years, biting my tongue and bottling up any unpleasant emotions turned me into a depressed, anxious, self-hating victim. I am praying for the courage to start standing up for myself.
