Things Left Unsaid October 29, 2006Posted by WishBoNe in Emotions & Feelings, Relationships.
Often, things are left unsaid between people. He wants to do it but you don’t want to do it because you need to go and don’t want to hurt his feelings by saying no. You say no, he feels he’s not attractive to you. You say yes, but you don’t enjoy it. He knows you didn’t enjoy it and gets upset. It’s a neverending cycle.
There never was any intent to hurt each other, yet, we’re doing it. Relationships are like bridges, they need to be cared for. Tender loving care. Sometimes, scrubbing is needed to clean up the mess. Too much scrubbing on the other hand, will hurt the bridge. It gets worn out.
Life brings us a lot of emotions to go through; happiness, sadness, anger, love, jealousy, envy, pride, loneliness, closeness, and many others. We go through them at each stage and overcome the negative ones by bringing in the positives.
We want to take away the unhappiness from our loved ones but sometimes, we’re at a lost. Sometimes, they just need to be alone for a while to clear their thoughts or just to vent their frustrations somewhere else. They don’t want to scare their love ones too.
The famous three words sentences are I am sorry and I love you are often left unsaid. These words seem only to happen in TV and movies. I don’t hear them being said between my parents or other couples. I’m not sure if it’s something to do with our Asian culture. It could be or we’re just reserved by nature.
Nobody is perfect. At one time or the other, we’ve hurt someone you love deeply. You will want to find a way to make up for it even though the deed’s done. Will we say the things that would help to reduce the misunderstandings?
