This is not a very deep, thought out post, with all the trimmings. However, I hope this is a segway to a deeper post in the near future. (And to reasure y’all that I am not dead…(I mean, there has to be one person that read this thing, right? Maybe?))
I was a conference a few weeks ago and was able to attend a few seminars on various topics. To be truthful, I do not remember which seminar this was spoken in but it was something that caught my attention. The speaker said “Hurt people hurt people.”
The speaker did not go in depth and explain what he meant by that phrase, so I did as I always do, ponder and draw conclusions. And I came up this this as a visual reminder and interpretation.
When I go through life, I can not hid what is in my heart- be it joy, sadness, compassion, rage, hurt, etc and so on and so forth. If I have something that I hurting me, or has hurt me and I have not dealt with it, it will present it self in all relationships. The deeper and more intense of a relationship, the greater the potential for that hurt to show up and affect the other person in that relationship.
Whatever is in your heart will be revealed, be it by time or by trial- true self will be revealed eventually if you have intentional and meaningful relationships with people.
Just some food for thought…
