He is constantly making me look bad (4)

I feel so unhappy in this relationship. Each time I go home to my parents I don’t want to leave them. I can’t see anywhere to go. I just want to be out of the house as long as I can. He portrays himself as an amazing guy to me, but behind my back he looks for opportunities to put me down to anyone I know.
