Love Should Never Hurt

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is a beautiful thing, if you are with the right person. It can have you walking around with tons of butterflies fluttering around; pulling on your heart-strings.  Love can have you act a fool for no reason. It can make you blind to everything and everyone around you, except the one you love. However, if you get to the point that you don’t want to be with your family and friends, you may be with the wrong person. Because that kind of love can become pure hell and you can find yourself plotting your escape route.

You have to be very careful of the people you allow yourself to become intimate with.  Sure, everything seems smooth as cream in the beginning, but once the spark goes out and after you have thrown all caution to the wind; trying to escape the hurt you are endearing may no longer be an option.

No one should ever feel obligated or pressured to do anything they are not comfortable with or ready for. You should be treated kindly and with the up most respect. There should not be any reason for jealousy within a relationship.  If you can’t trust the one you say you love, what’s the point of being together? How can you be in a relationship and feel as though you are better than the person you are in the relationship with? You can’t, so there is no need to be arrogant and rude. There is Never, Ever a need to put your hands on another person, unless you are reaching to give them a hug.

Yet, there are those that feel their life is not complete if they don’t have someone in it. That is so not true. Because if the person you say you love is hurting you or you’re the one causing the hurt, just how complete are you? Sure, we all want love, but just how much of yourself are willing to compromise to get it.

We all deserve to be happy and that includes being happy within a relationship. I don’t care what you say, or how hard one tries to justify someone mistreating them. There is no way you are happy allowing someone to walk all over you, disrespecting you, degrading you, abusing you mentally, verbally and physically. If you allow yourself to take a backseat, while they shine and they never acknowledge your worth, then you seriously need to get out and keep it moving.

If I am coming off as being harsh or cold, then I apologize to whoever feels that way. But, if what you feel; me being harsh or cold happens to help someone who may be reading this and who may be hurting by what they are calling love, then I have succeeded within my purpose. Because Love should never hurt.
