Hmm. Everyone has made a lot of valid points in this thread and I had no idea it would even go this far, lol.
I do want to say that reading this thread has opened my eyes a bit, because I've been in this tight space in my mind
that has been telling me that tough love is crap. I have been seeing black and white because I've been abused
and my parents used that word as a justification to abuse me. It gets confusing over the years. Brain washing commences.
The abortion topic I mentioned- Don't reply to that. That is an endless argument. It's like arguing about religions, lol. Never ending. >.<
Have any of you noticed any sort of connection with kids growing up abused, and being in abusive relationships?
I've known some women who grew up without abuse or violence etc but have ended up with abusive pricks.
Tough love, love etc, it's different for everyone but I have a wall up in front of me so it's difficult to see the different
colors and landscapes that I should be seeing.
