Feeling lost

My boyfriend and I have been dating for 9 months now, and we’ve known each other for over a year. We have little arguments over stupid things and he has a short temper, but I’m able to deal with it. Although I feel like I always unintentionally initiate the arguments. He’s still living with his family because he’s 19 and they don’t really like me that much because of the little arguments. Backstory: I have depression and PTSD (from a sexual harassment I went through when I was 16). I get scared at the slightest things like if he won’t respond to me I feel like he’s ignoring me and that he’s gonna leave me, I can’t help it because it’s what has happened multiple times in the past. I love and trust him, it’s just my past.
Anyways, his family is giving him a lot of shit for dating me and he’s getting tired and I can tell it’s bringing him down, but what he tells them is I make him happy and he loves me, but they won’t stop giving him shit. As a result I feel bad being with him and I feel lost, but I do really see a future with him and he feels the same way. What should I do and he/we do about this situation?

    Just tell them that if they don’t accept your relationship, then they’re either going have to learn to, or the 2 of you are not going to deal with them anymore.

    He’s very family oriented though and even tells me that they go above me

    @Author, then you are going to have to find a way to help his family like you.

    You and your boyfriend need to find a way to stop this drama. For one, if your boyfriend is an adult he can date whoever he wants regardless of what his family says or things. That’s on him if he truly loves you he’ll defend you and tell them to stop. If not maybe you need to move on because he’s not backing you up. A man stands by the woman he loves no matter what.
