Should we just not care, not let anyone close enough to hurt our feelings?
That would be a sad way to live.
We should recognize that we are human and when the ones we love hurt us on purpose or by accident, we need to face the hurt not react to it. We need to grieve a little for the small crack in our heart but then move on.
Can we change or erase that moment of hurt? Sadly,we can not.
Can we change the person or action that hurt us? Again sadly, we can not.
Embrace the goodness in your life and step away from the hurtful. Your heart might say try one more time or they didn't mean it give them one more chance. If listening to your heart is what makes you happy... do it... but I decided a long time ago, you can not change people. They are who they are and if you can't live with that and try to change them, it opens the door to constant heartache. Also, if you try to be what someone else wants you to be... well that just opens another door to pain and unhappiness.
Be True to yourself
Love deep without rules or boundaries but guard your heart with the shield of awareness. Just because you would do anything for a person does not mean they will do the same. How sad for them.
True happiness and contentment is when your personal circle touches others.
Hurt feelings are going to happen and holding on to them won't make them go away. It only cuts into your peace and happiness. So go out and touch someones life. It doesn't matter how... words of encouragement, a helping hand, an ear to listen,.. give yourself and don't worry about the hurt. It will only make your circle grow.
