I’m feeling really low right now because I hurt my boyfriend.
I should have said “I’m so angry right now, you don’t even know.”
But what I said was “I hate you so much right now, you don’t even know.”
I hate that I hurt him so. He is such a sweet guy that he would never even think of even justifying that statement with a response. Which hurts even more. He just said “I can’t believe you said that” and walked away. We’ve made up, but I can’t get over how I can just cut him with words without even thinking.

Don’t beat yourself up too much. Was it mean? Absolutely. 🙂 But you know it was and you feel regretful and you made up. There isn’t a lot more you can do. Maybe buy him dinner or do something nice later this week. We all do things we regret. We’re human. And I’m sure almost every lady on here could point to a moment where they just wanted to choke out their guy during an argument. I know I have. It happens.
Just show him you love him.

Guilty over here too, I have let those words slip out before and it is awful.
The moment you said those words I’m sure you regretted it and perhaps can use this as a learning experience for the future. When you are even tempted to say anything similar just remember how bad it made YOU feel to utter those words and you might be quick to change.
I am glad that he knows you didn’t mean it and that things are the upswing. All we can do is learn from our mistakes and hope to not repeat them.

I’ve done it too, and so has he, in the heat of a fight. We apologized later after we sulked by ourselves for a while and we are careful not to say it, even if we are mad. Things like this happen. Just so you both can be forgiving, it should be ok.

Thanks so for the support. You have each made me feel better 🙂
Love & Learn…

@Cougar09: Well, sign me up for guilt, too.
“Your mother is a bitch and I will never love her and I hate her with all my heart”
Yes, that’s how I feel. Should I have said it? No. Does he forgive me? Yes. So there you go, we have all done it!
