They think they did something wrong
And you know what? Maybe they did. Maybe a woman purposely tried to make her man jealous. Maybe she straight up cheated on him. But you know what? There are millions of men who would never become abusive, even if they were cheated on right in front of their faces. Because abusive tendencies don’t come from the outside, they come from within. A man either has them, or he does not. But there is never an excuse to abuse. An emotionally stable man could take the worst treatment from a woman and keep his fists to himself. He would just dump her instead. Because that’s what healthy people do. They leave someone who does something wrong. They don’t hurt them.
