lookin’ for love

with 2 comments

here’s a multiple choice question for you all:

what do you do when people show love in wrong (or even hurtful) ways?

a) let it go, their intentions are good

b) confront them and risk hurting their feelings/your relationship

c) try to show them you love them more

d) none of the above/other…

 

for those of you that chose:

a) are you ok with continually being hurt by the same person knowing that they mean well?

b) are you ok with having the person not listen to your confrontation and to continue doing what they’re doing because that’s how they are?

c) are you ok with him or her not accepting your love because that’s not the way they receive love?

d) what are the other options?

  1. This would probably go against every fiber of my personality, but I would go with B. I would do my very best to have the person understand, if the other person doesn’t want to listen then he/she risks losing a friend, not me.

  2. A and b
    You love them for who they are, not because of what they do for you, either good or bad. Continue loving their good qualities and who they are as a result of it. If they meant well, they probably don’t have the malicious intent to continuously cause you harm. .however if they do have that malintent, then obviously its a lot harder to love them.

    Definitely have a talk with your friend. Super important to tell them how they made you feel. She how he or she responds and then determine whether he or she is still the friend you want to have
