screaming girls

If you do or say something hateful or hurtful towards someone you supposedly “love” (spouse, partner, child, friend),

they won’t have any choice…but to start loving you a little less.

Why shouldn’t they?

Why should they love you as much as they did yesterday,

when today you chose to hurt them?

Is that what you want?

I don’t care if you are caught up in the moment and usually can’t control yourself.

Before saying something mean to someone you care about,

imagine the kinds of awful things they could potentially say back to you as a rebuttal.

Then keep your mouth shut.
