Only three people in my life have given me tough love and I hold on tight to them. My father, aunt and the love of my life. Anyways...it really does depend on the delivery. If it is harsh, I may get real quiet and I just think on it and later on down the road I realize that is how I needed to hear it. When it is delivered with a soft touch..it doesn't have the same effect as the harsher one. I prefer it harsh
I give it to my niece all of the time and there was a time I thought she despised me...she didn't really f* with me too much..but then we got back close again and one day out of the blue she made me tear up with an email she sent thanking me for giving it to her real all those times and how she appreciates it.
That girl will come around and thank that person one day when she realizes why said person told her what to do with that money. Sometimes people need to experience things for themselves and make mistakes too. At least you tried to help...if it is all love at the end of the day things will be all good again.
