Someone recently said to me, “If you’re hurting–you’re growing”.
I must be honest and say that when they told me that, I laughed (in disbelief) as I couldn’t understand how I can possibly be growing just because I’m hurting. However on considering this a bit more, I realised that this statement is probably true.
After all how do you learn to deal with hurt and disappointment, except by experiencing them, as you can’t really teach someone how to cope with these things.
Therefore, when you’re hurting, don’t forget that by dealing with your hurt, you are in fact gaining real life experience and so are growing as a person.
The other thing to always remember when you’re hurting is that you are not alone…Draw nearer to God & let Him be your strength.
