please please please
if someone has expressed dislike of the phrase “i hate you,” even in a joking matter, please stop using it. even if you know and they know you dont mean it, stop. you dont know many times their brain has told them that you mean it and that you dont care. in your head its funny, but in their head its causing them restless nights and anxiety and if they’ve said something about it and you still havent stopped, take a second to think about why. for all you know, it could be tearing them apart inside and they might really need to hear “i love you and i care” instead.
