Avoiding Double Injury

In the many days of our lives,
We are bound to be hurt by others.
Hurt by their action, hurt by their stinging words.
Deep can be the injury.
Bitter our hearts can turn.
But all the wise teachers and the compassionate gurus,
Have taught us to avoid subjecting ourselves,
To the second round of hurt.
Hurt that comes from our holding onto hatred-
Propagating a destructive energy,
Eating into our soul.

We know the Past cannot be changed.
So past events cannot be reversed.
But we also know,
The future is yet to be determined.
Healing comes from self,
By wanting to move on,
And dropping the drama.

To love self enough,
Is to present self with a better picture,
Of a healthier body and mind.
Detachment is the key ingredient of the cure-
The wonderful medicine of a healing heart.
Everyone deserves a second chance in life,
But unnecessary is the second round of hurt.

And so…
Be healed, dear ones.
It is done.

    This is so perfect. I try to convey this to people, but many people seem to feel like I am trying to take away their right to be angry and hurt. But it is my observation that we feel what we want the other person to feel. That is, if we get offended and we think that the other person should feel “bad” or “disappointed in themselves” for hurting us, then we end being the one that is hurting two times over. Thank God for you posting this, because I was just thinking about this not more than 15 mins ago. Synchronicity is the greatest.

    This is something that we all should consider the next time we get “our feelings” hurt. Anyway, how can “feelings” be hurt? Isn’t hurt a feeling itself? The things we say and do to ourselves.
