Why do we hurt the ones we love the most? Why do we lash out those closest to us?
I'm so guilty of this; my poor husband MJ cops a lot from me some days but he gives as good as he gets. This year has been really stressful for both of us (which is no excuse) and we've been finding ourselves taking that stress out on each other and it hurts (both of us).
We’re angry at a phone company so we hurt each other; we’re upset about a tyre blowing so we lash out at the other person; we’re tired after a long day so we snap at each other. Why do we do this? Why do we push at each other instead of drawing together?
We’re not alone in this, most couples would agree. We draw away from those who love us and lash out at them knowing they'll take it and will always be there (or hope they will). They’re the only people we can let our guard down around and show our vulnerable side to.
It’s a trend that needs to stop or at least lessen. If we don’t acknowledge the problem and work on a solution it can turn into something worst. Lying, cheating, abuse (physical/verbal) and more, divorces are on the rise because we can’t control our emotions and lash out those who are near and dear.
So please hug your love ones and let them know they’re so special to you and you love them beyond measure. Make a conscious effort to work together not apart, because life is a journey and it’s best to travel it with your best friend not your enemy.
