Some months back, a friend of mine blogged about how we all hurt in different ways. I've been thinking a lot about this lately. She mentinoed that some people cry, some confront the person who hurt them. Some bury their head in the sand and pretend nothing happened. Some withdraw to lick their wounds. Some just get angry. Some have to find someone to talk to. I withdraw.
Now, if I'm angry, that's a different story. I tend to fight when I'm angry. You know the old saying, "fight or flight". I fight. But if I'm hurt, that's a different thing. I usually withdraw and don't talk to the person. It isn't the silent treatment, it's just that I need time to lick my wounds. In fact, when I am really upset, I don't want to talk to anyone. I want to deal with it alone.
What do you do when you are hurt by someone?
