Feeling Hurt


All of us feel hurt, bitter or angry once in a while.

Some of us feel hurt because we have no one to share our burdens.

Some of us feel hurt when others are not sensitive to our needs and wants.

Some of us feel hurt because of our past experiences.

Some of us feel hurt when our secrets are exposed.

Some of us feel hurt because of rejection, betrayal, abuse, injustice, or ill-treatment by others.

But there are some among us who feel hurt when others feel hurt.

*******

It is not easy to bear when others don't want to talk to us anymore.

It is not easy to bear when others don't trust us anymore.

It is not easy to bear when others don't want to do with us anymore.

And it is never easy to bear when others insult us in public.

*******
It can be really painful when our loved ones are not faithful to us.

It can be really painful when we are being cheated all the time.

*******

Some of us feel hurt when they heard others are being hurt. This is good. It means they love others so much that they don't want anything bad to happen to them.

Parents feel hurt when their children and grandchildren cannot live in peace and harmony. To them, the family belongs together no matter what happens.

*******

Others get hurt when their birthday or an important date is forgotten.

Others get hurt when they have a breakup.

Others get hurt when their parents are busy.

Still others get hurt when their friends leave without saying goodbye.

*******

A few of us get hurt so very easily.

A few of us get hurt over something so tiny.

A few of us get hurt over some advices and comments.

A few of us get hurt over some misunderstandings and misinterpretations.

*******

We usually blame others for our hurt feelings.

Yet we often set ourselves up to experience hurts, rejection or burnout.

Maybe we need to learn to be more positive and less sensitive.

We don't have to feel vulnerable to feel hurt.

Smile! Life is not that bad after all.

Very well said and oh, so true. We control our own feelings so we need to realize that feeling hurt and experience that stress is our own doing.
