Never suffer silently – articulate what’s bothering you even if it is to yourself.
Hurt feelings are a part of life – they are a down payment on future happiness yet to come.
Allowing someone to discourage you is hurtful behavior on your part.
Being human and feeling awful about something or someone who has hurt you is nothing to be ashamed of – deal with it and move on.
Rule number 1 – do not strike back at those who hurt, you will not be happy being like them.
Take heart in realizing that life is a risk – when we let people get close to us they are within close proximity to hurt us.
Pain is transformational.
It comes and it goes.
It’s what happens in between that can be worse than the hurt and there is something we can do about that.
Love yourself a little bit more.
