Doubt: I question my own perceptions, I understand his reasons, not as bad as it looks, I feel responsible, I’m not angry anymore…

1. Tension Building: fits of anger, long periods of silence, bullying, threatening looks...

Anxiety: I sense things will go bad; I’m worried; I try very hard to lower the tension; I’m scared: I am paralyzed, I feel as though I’m walking on eggshells…
