The closer you are to someone, the more they can get to you. Because feelings are involved. If a stranger on the street yells "I hate you, you asshole" youprobably won't care that much. No feelings invested and you'll brush him off as an idiot. If your brother will tell you the same thing, you'd probably care a lot more. Feelings are wonderful, but they complicate things.

Because real feelings are involved they love you and if you "screw up" that causes pain. You can only hurt those who truly care about u with ur negative actions, everyone else really dont care.

emotional pain is a mental trait. It's only painful if you feel it's painful...

people hurt the ones they love because they take advantage of being loved and use it for whatever love is beautiful but sometimes love is blind

sadly it's because a person feels "safest" with the ones they love, and so they let their ugly demons out to be seen. with strangers we all wear social masks that we hide behind. all of us need healing in some form or another.

I think it's because we consider them to have the same feelings that we have towards them to be returned. You can get into a disagreement with a friend, even a close friend, and if that disagreement is resolved, or not, it's easily closed. The one's we hold close, the one's who hold us close...that's different. They will listen to our rantings, and we will listen to theirs, but we rely on them more, as they do us. We know that our rants are not taken to heart.

Because those are the ones who won't press charges. Hurting strangers or people who don't love you may result in revenge or legal drama.

It is much safer hurting someone you love.

I have never agreed with this statement. You don't hurt the one you love or you don't love them. People who love someone who doesn't love them usually are the ones who get hurt. rosey

The people you most love is the people you sometimes hurt the most. This is, I think, because you feel that the people closest to you should and must tolerate you. And certainly the people closest to you and that love you will forgive you. We are not dumb, when we want to give a good impression or make friends we are sweeter and tolerant because they will not bear with us. It should not be this way but sometimes it is.
