When you hear someone say, ‘love doesn’t hurt’ what does that mean to you? Does it mean that the only way someone truly loves you is if they didn’t hurt you? Let me go on record to say that I would have to beg to differ. We are all human and as they say “to err is human…” so how can we honestly say that we will not “hurt” someone if we err as humans? I just think that if and when you love someone, you don’t intentionally hurt them because eventually if you stay close enough to someone for a period of time, one of you (if not both) are bound to be hurt at some point in the relationship.
Even the nicest person in the world (let’s just say for sake of argument that person is me right now **smile**) can say the most beautiful thing in the world to someone and another person will take offense to it. Now did this person “intend” on harming anyone with their words? Of course not! But did someone get hurt….YES! So you see, as long as we are all individuals and have our own mind and freedom to think and choose the way we would like, we will ALWAYS hurt someone at some given point. Now let’s say that someone you love (maybe out of anger) said or did something that was not of a kind nature and hurt your feelings.
Once you have been hurt by this person, after you go and tell them how they made you feel, then they should apologize and make amends. This is the way that they display true love to you because true love never intentionally seeks to harm anyone. So instead of saying love doesn’t hurt, maybe what we should adopt is ‘love does not seek to hurt’ because in reality if you keep living long enough you are bound to hurt someone’s feeling with something you say or do and most often, it is not intentional but it does happen.
