addendum to "love them like your own"

Posted by   + Show Post

 Still have many many ladies swearing they lovem like their own. Even getting insulted.

But yet, every single day on this forum we are littered with posts about how many SM's used to love them like their own.....until they entered their teens and now they are using this forum to help teach them how to disengage.

Not to mention all the blabber about how you would NEVER let your taxes go to pay your husbands arrearages for these children you love like your own. Fucked up huh?

Then lets add in the fact that the same women answering the other post will not pitch in a dime towards a college fund for the shitty teens they are going to hate and disengage from someday.

Post after post after post in this forum and others like it, fly's in the face of this "Love them like my own" statement that gets thrown around.

In fact......there isnt alot of any kind of love for these children on this forum. Not the kind a REAL parent would have.

Love is an action not just an emotion. Imo, you cant tell your sc, "I love you like my own, BUT..." For bm, there is never a 'but'. Whether its financial reasons, other bkids, it doesn't matter. Everything is incorporated - because love isn't an emotion, its an action.

Idk if that makes sense. It's hard to explain my thoughts on a computer lol

 What kind of person takes a well intenioned positive statement that can do no harm; ONLY GOOD, and make it ugly?  Ranting and raving about someone expressing love?  You're RIDICULOUS!  Get real and open your eyes to this world.
