Most of the hurts I have experienced are usually unintentional. If they were intentional, then they were relatively small. I really can’t say that I am super attached to figuring this out or I have actually moved beyond it. I know that people hurt because they are either sociopaths, which I believe is a hurt all on it’s own or they have pain.
Pain alters our minds and actions. It puts us in a kind of survival mode that is primordial and doesn’t represent who we really are. I understand that. I get it and that helps to move the forgiveness process along. I reflect on the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and the quote:
“Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their on mind; they are in a completely different world…
Like any other human, I have fears, plans, joys. I engage in bad self-talk and I am at a crossroads as I get older because we get to watch our loved ones die more often now. We have mental illness in our family and I am still trying to understand it and strive to encourage success in my loved ones and crush the stigma. I am a culinary artist, group fitness instructor. I love nature and I enjoy writing about my heart on my sleeve.
