This has been an emotional week of highs and lows. My feelings were hurt. I tried to think all around the event that caused the hurt and realized some amazing things. After of course i was mad and sad. It is not fun to feel rejected or not wanted ((even if that is not what is really happening)) it can feel that way all the same. I had the luxury of going to the beach and pondering the situation. When i took my eyes off the “offense” which was only a boundary, i realized some tough things about myself. I can grow from this. I can learn to see things with new eyes and not see every situation from the pain of past hurts. I found myself thanking God all day for the opportunity to respect boundaries, grow, and discover new ways to live my life. I took responsibility for my part in the misunderstanding. First i called friends that would TOTALLY validate me. Then once i was validated... I could take that hurt and used it to see areas of my life where i could grow. I am not the victim of the hurt. Just the recipient. I get to choose what to do with it. Wallow or grow... well how a
