I Feel That The Older I Am, The More I Reflect On My Past

I think the reason I yell is because I know my husband’s family doesn’t like me. I’ve known that for a long time. I’m in an environment where people don’t like me. My husband’s dad bullied me when I was in my twenties...
It affected me. I felt they or he didn’t have respect for me. I don’t know if it was just because I wasn’t tough enough or what. I know he bullied my husband when he was growing up as well. And he criticized my son behind his back but still. He made fun of his haircut and his clothes. And I absolutely didn’t want my son to go through what I did to feel that kind of rejection. My son was kind hearted and he adored my husband’s family. Here’s the thing. Some people bully because they’re just bullies. That’s it. I believe my father-in-law has high self esteem and doesn’t understand how his behavior affects others. I think he lacks empathy as well.
