The days you hear your partner before he walks in the door are better than the days he comes home silent. You know if you can hear him, his anger has an outlet; he might say horrible, ugly things, but you’ll be physically unharmed for the evening. When he comes home silent, his eyes cold, his mouth mean, you know he’ll take it out on you.
You step on eggshells all evening, hoping to diffuse the anger instead of trigger it. Eventually, though, no matter how hard you try, he loses his temper and lays into you. Maybe the last time was months ago, or maybe it was just yesterday. Either way, you need to get help for yourself and your children.
