What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
But the real deal on being stronger is that it is a journey through tough times and hard feelings.
People say things that hurt, make us vulnerable and feel rejected.
It’s natural. It’s as predictable as sunrise and sunset and there is one sure way to cure the devastating effects of hurt feelings.
Work through them immediately.
It’s okay to feel hurt.
People who act like their feelings are not hurt is almost as detrimental as those doing the hurting. Feel it and move on.
When a boxer takes a punch they almost simultaneously throw a punch.
Humans are not punching bags. We are strong, resourceful and agile beings capable of absorbing pain and disappointment as long as it doesn’t end there.
We must get up and fight back in the count of 10 to succeed another day.
“I think one’s feelings waste themselves in words; they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results” – Florence Nightingale
