Only you are responsible for how long you let what hurt you, haunt you.
Yikes! This statement for me, stirred up a lot of emotions and thoughts that just validated its point to the Nth degree.
It has taken me some time to realize this truth. It's a tough one to learn but once you do, you are free.
Anytime we discover a new truth, there is always a period of grief afterwards that is only to be expected, as we discover how much of our lives and knowledge was built on whatever the falsity was. This is what is so tough.
But afterwards, you see that the truth will set you free and you can begin to live lighter, love deeper, and breathe easier choosing to free yourself from the hurt you harbor (and relive over and over) within you.
