I don't understand why my partner isn't constantly mad at me.

I don't understand the patience. I don't understand the kindness.

I don't understand the lack of resentment and hatred.

And I hate that it's because I expect to be abused.

    I have a similar experience. I feel like my partner should be mad at me. And I always expect to be cheated on again

    It is not your responsibility to maintain your partner’s happiness or kindness. If you constantly find yourself overwhelmed and emotional exhausted because you’re walking on glass, it might be time to re evaluate the relationship.

      I think you may have misunderstood what I meant. I was saying that due to my past, the fact that my partner shows me kindness and patience during times where I have been conditioned to expect punishment is confusing and off-putting. While my partner shows me love, I expect and believe I deserve abuse
