Dealing With Pains and Hurt

People may have disappointed you, betrayed your trust, hurt you badly, break your heart and even make you question yourself…..

But you must learn to accept the fact, that some people may never fully come to understand how much damage they may have caused you or others close to you by reason of their actions or inaction; as such you don’t have to stay damaged, hurt and in pain.

There are times when we must accept that people are exactly who we hoped they wouldn’t be…Yes I know, you may have been hurt so badly by their actions, Yes I know, that sometimes its not what happened that hurts the most, but rather its who did it that breaks you, but you still don’t have to stay broken.

The best revenge is being whole again. Its time to let go of the hurts and pain, its time to free your heart of the bitterness and anger you feel. Its time to be you all over again; Being hurt, offended or angry doesn’t give you an excuse to become the person you were not meant to be; You don’t have to let an emotion change your character..

You don’t have to be the person who keeps a grudge against someone else regardless of how much hurt they may have done; you got to be smart!!…. you got to learn to let go… Letting go is freeing your self from bitterness and pain, Letting go is choosing not to let the hurt define your character, Letting go is refusing to let the negativity steal your joy. Life is too short to be intentionally unhappy; Decide today to be happy, Decide today to free yourself from the hurts! Your life can be better!

Don’t Give Up Because Someone Else Has

This is a story about never giving up, I’ve read and share it years ago, but it holds so much insight that I will love you to see.

Never Give Up

One day a young lady was driving along with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?”He said
“keep driving”. Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.
“What should I do.” The young lady asked?
“Keep driving,” her father replied.
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad, “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”
Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”
She said “But why now?” He said “When you get out,look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.
This is a testimony for anyone who is going through “hard times”. Just because everyone else,even the strongest, gives up. You Don’t have to…if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine upon your face again, know that God is always by your side.

Grow With Change

Change is inevitable, but growth is optional; you’ll either fight it or flow with it, but know this-if you’re not willing to leave Egypt, you’ll never get to the Promised Land.
Author Gayle Sheehey says, “if you can’t change, you won’t grow, and if you’re not growing, you’re not really living. Growth means giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning. Taking a new step or uttering a new word is what we fear most, but in reality, our fear should be the exact opposite.”
Rabbi Samuel Silver writes, “The greatest of all miracles is that we need not to be tomorrow what we are today, if only we’ll use the potential implanted within us by God.”
I can’t think of anything worse than living a stagnant life devoid of change and improvement-can you.
You must accept the change and grow along with it to have. Successful and full filed life.
Today and now is the best time to change, make the decision to grow then accept the change and grow with it.
