And so, in response to Mommy’s question, here are my two cents on the matter.
1. To Test Them
I stumbled upon a quote before. It goes:
We try to push away the ones we love
to see who stays no matter what.
It is a sad reality. I too am guilty for this ‘leave-me-alone’ tactics. I don’t really know what’s with some. Pride maybe? or perhaps from watching too much drama on TV. I guess it is the latter. Just one of their melancholic nights added with paranoia resulting from overthinking secondary to being madly in love. Duhh, I don’t have time for that. You are never in any position to test anyone. unless you are a teacher, or a medical technologist, or a psychologist, or a doctor.
But no. Only situations should test you. And Time. Distance as well.
2. To Teach a Lesson
Just like a child beaten for sinning, or fighting with his siblings, or even more disrespecting his parents. The people who loves us often choose to hurt us in order to teach us a lesson. You need a pinch to wake you up from a bad dream. That’s all. That pinch may vary from a simple pinch in the chin to a slap on the face. Remember, this is because they care.
3. You are Sadistic
No kidding. other than the two mentioned above, I couldn’t think of any other reason. I only promised two cents right? 😀
How about you? What do you think? Why do we hurt the ones we love?
