Gut-wrenching pain. It’s unavoidable and part of the human experience.
And for many, they carry the baggage of the experience with them for the rest of their lives and into new relationships. Oftentimes causing a repeat of the past.
This baggage, this:
prevents progress and true healing.
The hurtful words hurled are often rehearsed until they materialize and become real.
Listen, the only thing we all need to take from these painful experiences is the lesson and the story.
Leave everything else.
Burn the luggage.
Bury the regret.
Dismiss the betrayal.
All you need is the lesson and the story.
