I got it really wrong last night. After an argument in which my girl had disobeyed me, she said she wanted to go to bed. I replied: "I don't care, it doesn't matter anymore. Do what you like." she intepreted this as me disowning her. She's now, understandably, upset. I think it was really insensitive of me, and I'm now questioning whether I should actually own her after hurting her like this. I know everyone makes mistakes, but I think this was just horrible of me; I've owned her for almost a year and known her for nearly 3, I should have realised how a statement like this would feel to her. The guilt is horrible...She shouldn't have had to feel that.
