Never hold onto a hurt, because resentment tears you up. Resentment is like drinking poison and hoping it's going to kill someone else. It doesn't work. You have to decide that, before anything else happens, you are going to forgive that person.
Rick Warren

While behind your back are lighting flames.

Wasn't living, just barely existing.

Sometimes you trust someone who turns out not to be honest. There are a lot of things that happen in life that don't turn out the way you're given the impression that they will. And I think that's all kind of a con. But I think we've probably all been hurt.

Let's ... acknowledge that not everything comes down to a choice especially when a person may have to emotionally deal with the loss of a loved one or your pet of many years dies or when your wife or husband has left you. Sure, these circumstances of life mean that a natural state of mourning at one's personal loss is something that cannot be chosen to in any way suggest that a choice overarches the hurt or pain. Nevertheless, if your prevailing choice has been one of happiness, it is my contention that the pain or hurt will not be the predominant emotional state for the rest of your life.

Christian Poems  |   

His heart his wound received from my sight;
My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
For as from me on him his hurt did light,
So still, methought, in me his hurt did smart:
Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss,
My true love hath my heart and I have his.
Sir Philip Sidney, My True Love Hath My Heart
