Testing You

I should write on this more, but I want to go finish the movie I'm watching before I go to work (won't happen). So here it is in brief:

Someone asked me a couple of weeks ago how anger was portrayed when I was a child to which I answered, boldly, "violently." Just now, reading through my FaceBook news feed, someone posted, "I like to create awkward situations, just to see if people like me enough to stick with me. Ha." Of course, I liked it and started thinking about it. I've always enjoyed testing people's patience; pushing them, pushing them, pushing them. Why? I want to know why. Perhaps I test your patience because I need to know how you'll react. In life, you will lose your temper; you will lose your cool. I need to know what that looks like. Once I know, I can keep you at a comfortable distance. Makes perfect sense to me.

  1. When I read that status on facebook I thought it was a little juvenile, but I'm glad you wrote this post, because it makes me understand why someone might do that.
