Those We Love Aren’t Punching Bags

If you actually love someone, then you would treat them properly. You wouldn’t be treating random strangers better than them. When you really love someone, you don’t save your worst for them.

Just because you feel like their love for you is unconditional, and that no matter what you put them through and how you speak to them, they will always be there for you, it’s never ok. 

If you really love someone, you won’t let some stress take over and affect the way that you treat them. If you’ve had a rough day, it doesn’t mean that you deserve to come home and be nasty to them. They don’t deserve that. It doesn’t mean that they can be your punching bag to release your anger towards. If you’re mad at yourself, your family or your boss – then understand that you aren’t mad at your partner, and that they have done nothing wrong. 

If your partner has been stressing you out, then that’s something else. But you can calmly talk to them and be mature about what’s going on – rather than exploding at them.  If you really love someone, you won’t take advantage of their love and support for you, no matter what you may be going through. You don’t scream at someone you love for no good reason, and you surely don’t blame them for your personal problems when you know that they have nothing to do with it. 

When you love someone, you don’t disrespect them.
