A kiss is just a kiss! haha…no really….
Just because you say it is so, doesn’t mean it is. Just because you devalue another person by reducing their feelings to drama, or being oversensitive, doesn’t mean you are right or they are any less hurt by what you did or said.
We all need to take responsibility for our words and actions;realizing both can hurt others. And if someone is hurt by either our words or actions it is up to us to apologize. Just because you think it shouldn’t hurt them, that they are blowing it out of proportion (or whatever you tell yourself to justify your words and/or actions) does not mean you are right! It doesn’t make them any less hurt.
I think people who bully probably follow this philosophy of devaluing peoples pain.
I try to follow the golden rule; “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!”
I bet if I said something or did something to you that hurt your feelings you would be pretty upset if I told everyone you were just being too sensitive= devaluing your feelings! Your feelings matter, as do mine.
