Yes, of course but only on an accidental or subconcious level

Yes, a cynical manipulator can do it deliberately as well.

No that's impossible, warm and fuzzy can't be linked to hurt and pain.

3. My cats are warm and fuzzy.

But one of them occasionally bites me. So, if a cat can be considered a person, the answer is yes.

4. Of course, there's even a euphimism for it.

The velvet-gloved hand wielding an iron bar.

6. True

Until we take responsibility for our pain the healing can't begin.

7. Define "warm and fuzzy."

Probably yes, because people are hurt by things others might not expect them to be hurt by.

8. One of the worst hurts I ever got in my life came from from someone trying to comfort me.

They totally and completely misjudged my reaction to a piece of information that they would have found comforting, I found exactly the opposite.

10. Absolutely. It is part of growing up that you accept their is not just light, but darkness out

there. Some people are toxic to you. Rejecting them may seem hurtful to the person being rejected. Hopefully they learn something from it. But of course you have to say no many times in your life.
