Sometimes, I’m not angry, I’m hurt

Anger is defending oneself when you feel threatened. Any time you have an outburst, just ask yourself what you fear losing and be honest with yourself, even if it makes you cry, then tell yourself your mind is mistakenly telling you have much less control over your situation than you actually do, and work toward self control. It’s the only thing you can really control. To the situations you can’t control, give everything you can, build the world you want to see, acquire skills to improve your life and the lives of people around you. Feed the hopes, not the fears. ~ Oliva Sullen 

“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.” ~ Nicholas Sparks

“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” ― C. JoyBell C.

Hurt is hard to hide, if you let them know maybe they won’t be a part of your life anymore, so you bury it deep inside and let it eat at you, hurts you but not them. ~ Joan Olson
