I am trying to cut a long story as short as possible so please bear with me..
I broke up with my bf 1 year ago due to his excessive drinking and anger which caused him to be verbally abusive to me, my family and was often in fights whenever he went out.
He lost his licence and all the friends he thought he had, he lost his family and me and our 2 daughters.
When we broke up we became better friends than we had been ever. I enjoy his company and I feel really comfortable with him.He has been on antidepressants for a few months now and hasn't been drinking and I found myself starting to like him again.
Tonight we went to the movies and on the way home some little turd teenagers blocked the road with boxes chairs, sticks etc.
He nearly hit it and he absolutely snapped. He didnt even turn the car off, he jumped out and ran after them. I was praying he didn't catch one just because I knew what he would've done to them. I was kinda in shock and just stood there screaming at him to come back.
He came back after a while, luckily he didnt catch one (he had a sore knee after his boss missed a pole he was holding with a sledgehammer)
He was totally normal after and helped me clear the stuff off the road.
My impulse in that situation was anger but My version of catch them was with a camera.
What I really want to know is how do people snap so easily and what can I do to prevent it?
I don't want someone who snaps like that in front of me and my kids.
