The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for – Bob Marley, Jamaican singer and songwriter
So, does everyone eventually hurt you? Maybe. Maybe not.
Do YOU eventually hurt everyone? Again, maybe or maybe not.
So, what happens when you imagine you are hurt? Yes, I did say imagine.
You suffer a heartache, right?
There are times when people hurt you unintentionally. Then there are times when people do not even realise that they may have hurt you. There are also times when people do not give a damn about whether they have hurt you or not. Despite which you still suffer. Rather, still choose to suffer.
Have you ever asked yourself why?
Suffering is a habit. A very addictive one at that. Imagining that you are suffering makes you believe you’ve been wronged. It also makes you feel like a martyr. And it makes you feel noble.
As I said, a very addictive habit.Heartaches are optional. Click To Tweet
Most people don’t realise that. Your heart beats for very few, so then why should it ache for all?
Choose your heartaches ruthlessly. Let people say or do what they want to towards you. Always remember, you are the boss of your feelings and it is you who should decide whose words and/or actions deserve a response and who and what deserves to be ignored.
Your feelings and emotions are precious. Be smart in investing them in the right people and in the right places. Be smarter in choosing your heartaches. Choose shutting out over suffering.
Make your feelings and emotions so priceless that very few and deserving people can afford them. The rest should not matter.
