Why are we hurt by those close to us? Why do people turn their backs on us? Why do we feel hurt? Why is our hearts broken? I believe that God puts us through things to make us strong. I believe that our experiences help us to grow. We may not understand why He is doing it, but we have to have faith and understand that He has a plan for our lives. In difficult situations, we must ask ourselves, what lesson can I get from this? What is this teaching me? It’s okay to be sad and upset. These are our emotions. It’s better to go through these emotions and try not to mask them. Crying doesn’t make us weak. It makes us human. It’s okay to be confused. It’s so easy to blame the person that hurt you and take your frustrations out on them. You may want that person to feel just as bad as you. You have to understand that God places people in your life for a reason. Nobody crosses paths by accident. If someone does you wrong, do not seek revenge. We have to forgive. Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior, forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart. Remember that you are beautiful, strong, intelligent and brave. You have so much to offer the world. Keep progressing and live your best life. The best is yet to come. You will be okay.
