This could have been written specifically for me. Maybe it has value in your day as well.
When You Have A Good Heart
A long time ago, someone much wiser than I said:
When you have a good heart:
You help too much. You trust too much. You give too much. You love too much. And it always seems … you hurt the most.
I can relate to this old adage. I think any Mother can without question. But I also know we are responsible for our own feelings. So the question isn’t why do we get hurt, but rather why do we allow ourselves to feel hurt?
That’s an easy one to answer, but it’s not an easy answer to live with. Because it’s our own expectations that cause us to feel hurt.
