It’s difficult not to be hurt by what others do that feels like a personal attack to us. Realizing that the bottom line is that no-one can hurt us if we don’t let them is easier said than done, but it’s true nonetheless. What we need to do is vent maybe talking with someone you trust, working out or going in the bathroom where you can scream really loud. Than we are in a better place to really look at what it means. Sometimes it isn’t even what we thought it was. Sometimes it doesn’t even have anything to do with us, sometimes it’s more about the person who hurt you than you. Sometimes it allows us to see what we need to change inside ourselves.
We can’t do anything constructive with a negative thought, it’s a waste of our precious time, and think of how many times we’ve hung onto such hurtful feelings. At some point when we realize we have giving these hurts all the thought we are willing to give it, then it is time to not only forgive that person, but ourselves as well for allowing it to hurt us in the first place.
