Learning what love is
Again yes watching Oprah today and Mindy McCready was on talking about how she tried to kill herself over a guy who beat the crap out of her that she still ‘loved.’ As Oprah asked her over and over again Mindy was certain she loved this man who tried to kill her.
I believe that anyone who says that they love someone that intentionally hurts them and treats them so badly doesn’t have the slightest clue what love really is. I don’t believe love is pain. I think you can be in pain because of your love for someone…such as if your loved one is hurt or hurting then it causes you pain.
A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
From that description I don’t think that coincides with a person who beats you repeatidly. I believe with someone like this it’s not so much she loves this man but she desperately hates herself.
The worst part of all of this is it turns out she’s pregnant with his baby now because she continued to go back to him even after he nearly killed her. I believe she will probably continue to go back to him until he kills her, her baby or both. Although he may end up in jail unless I guess she drops the charges.
Unless this woman drastically changes this poor child doesn’t have a chance.
