Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind and has given up worrying once and for all. – Ovid
what hurts you?
We carry a lot of emotional baggage. People and circumstances have hurt us. Actually they’ve not hurt us, we’ve allowed hurt to occur. Self-knowledge is key to uncovering such issues.
awareness & acceptance
Two ways out of it are awareness and forgiveness. Awareness of what actually happened and our part in the allowing the hurt. Forgiveness can be understood as acceptance. We accept how a certain person is, they are what they are, we let them be, we accept them for what they are and move on.
Daily Affirmation: Today I understand how I allow myself to hurt.
