4/23/12 – Hurting Those You Love


“Those who really love you don’t mean to hurt you and if they do, you can’t see it in their eyes but it hurts them too.” ― Holly Black

There is really nothing I hate more in this world than knowing that I have hurt someone that I love and care about. But, sometimes, there is no way to avoid it. It hurts me so bad to know when I have done this, it’s a feeling I’d like to say I will never have again, but I know that isn’t true. I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t hurt when I hurt others. As a friend said to me earlier when I said I was down and dragging a little today, “Just remember you are just feeling what it is like to be human. If you didn’t drag a little I would be worried!”

I also know how it feels to be on the other end, to be hurt by someone whom I know loved me, and i know, that despite how much they cared, there was just no other way and that it hurt them too.  I guess there is no love in this world without knowing and feeling pain, but that doesn’t make it any easier. If only a bandaid worked on all wounds…

That’s all I got. I think we all get it and know how it feels to be on both ends. So, for what it’s worth, I’m sorry! I’m so so sorry!
