HOW TO HEAL A HURTING HEART

There are many things that cause
a heart to hurt.
It can hurt from unkind words.
Disappointment and failure
can be painful experiences.
Separation and loss
can be heart damaging.
Rejection can cause wounds.
Mistakes can cause painful regret.
Loneliness can bring heartache.
Abuse is shattering.
Even little things can cause big hurts.
But when the heart hurts, even breaks,
there are ways to heal it.
Remind yourself that a broken heart
is not a broken life.
It is not a broken dream.
A heart filled with pain does not
destroy your inner goodness.
It does not destroy your strength
to survive.
You are still whole.
Remember that the human body,
including a hurting heart,
is equipped to heal.
Allow it to happen.
Don’t pick at your wound
and keep it open and bleeding.
Allow it to heal
Give yourself permission
to hurt, but also to heal.
Give yourself permission
to rise up from your pain
and keep on living.
There is still life to live.
