    Re: accepting

    #1 accepting [= not questioning the situation] and caring [=I care about this] - is is the opposite situation to being right and hurtful

    #2
    take what I can from this relationship [I will behave as I want, and do what I want, without consideration of you or anyone else's feelings] and weaken it [make it less viable as a relationship because there will be no trust in it]
