What bugs me, is that when they are as straight forward as that, looking back, you know, it’s clear. Abuse, plain and simple. But what about when it’s not. What if it comes from a place of disappointment - from a “you can do anything— why aren’t you?” point of view. Words can hurt, even if they don’t mean to. Even if it’s from a place of love, right? Right? Maybe it isn’t abuse anymore but. But it still hurts, right? I don’t even know what to call it.
