What does it mean to hurt someone?
Hopementalhealth.com says, “What to do when you hurt someone you love? When feeling guilty after hurting someone, apologize immediately and unconditionally without trying to justify your actions. Acknowledging that the person has a right to be offended by your inappropriate action will make it easier for them to forgive you.”

How to avoid hurting someone you love
Before your actions lead to a fight. Be at peace with yourself. Learn to manage your anger. Learn to be kind. Don’t look for fights, no matter what you’re going through don’t take it out on unsuspecting people; people who fall victim to your anger by being the next person you meet.
What goes on before you interact with another person is not their fault. Don’t carry your baggage everywhere. I’m not saying hide it. I’m not saying if you’re being abused to keep it quiet… No! I’m saying don’t fight with people because you could not fight with the person who caused the baggage to be there.
