Love can be complicated and truly loving someone means you want what is best for those you love. Sure, the good times are great, but there will come those occasions that require your ability to deliver honest communication even when it is not often appreciated. Although it may hurt, you may be the only person that keeps them balanced or acknowledging reality when they need it most. Allowing someone to continue on a path that is detrimental to his or her well-being is not love.
Sometimes that destructive behavior is concealed, however, being tuned into someone will allow you to detect unhealthy or inconsistent changes in behavior or habits. If someone is hurting, they may be searching for something or someone to help distract them from their pain or to help find a resolve. Let them find you there until they trust you enough to submit to being helped properly. Continue to love them so they get it and realize your beautiful role in their life.
3 Indicators it’s Time to Talk
- Passion turns to frustration
- Plagued with a lingering sadness
- A preference to be alone if it is not typical behavior
If you note that they need professional help or if you are unsure, recommend that they seek it or help them find it. Love cares through the best and worst of times.
Love can see what most cannot. –Marala Scott
