So I saw this post on Facebook about a text convo of a couple where the girl was trying to break up with his boyfriend and being rude to him saying mean things for no reason. All the while, the boyfriend was being patient and sweet trying to get his girl’s mind off it. And in the caption, it says that it would be nice to have a boyfriend like that who understands a girl’s mood swings completely.
I just wanted to share my point of view about this. I’m not an expert in relationships, and I’m not trying to make an argument but I just think that this is a little selfish on the girl’s part.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a girl and of course I would love to have a boyfriend who understands me and is very patient with me. But I believe that if I want a good boy, then I should probably be a good girl. I mean, do you really have to treat him that way? Don’t you think you should at least respect his feelings seeing as he’s doing every thing to keep you happy? If you try to put yourself in his position, and he’s the one who’s trying to break up with you and be rude to you all the time, how would you feel? Yes, you might do your best to understand him, but surely you’ll get hurt. Surely you’ll feel unwanted. Surely you’ll be wishing that your boyfriend would stop breaking up with you.
I just think that if you want to receive that kind of treatment, then you should show him that you deserve it. “Do unto others what you want othes to do unto you,” and all that. Your mood, no matter how bad it may be, is never a reason or excuse to be rude to anyone. If it’s that bad, then maybe you should consider anger management techniques to control your emotions instead of pouring it over to your boyfriend. Stop doing it to him just because he’s being understanding and accepting. Instead, thank him for his patience and show him how much you appreciate him. Because I’m telling you, if you have that kind of attitude and he’s not leaving you, then you’re an incredibly lucky girl.
Always remember the old saying, “Love is a two-way street.” You can’t expect him to be the only one contributing in your relationship. You should give your fair share too..
