Love is supposed to hurt. You’re supposed to miss the person you love. You’re supposed to crave them until it’s all you feel reverberating through your bones. You’re supposed to love them so deeply that you feel as if you might break. But love is never supposed to be used to conflict physical and emotional pain on another person. It is not used to make a person belittle themselves. You should never have to make excuses for your loved one’s harsh words that cause you pain. Love is supposed to hurt. It is whether or not the pain is intentional that decides if it’s true love.
