The longer I walk through life the more I realize it is impossible to not encounter hurting people everyday.
I can press on oblivious or I can do my best to lighten a load, bring a smile or comfort a heart.
Some days it is me who is hurting. Interesting enough, remaining sensitive to the needs of others makes me less sensitive to my own hurts.
Yes, hurting people do often hurt people but hurting people are often healed when they choose to help the hurting.
The hurting are out there today. Their confidence, facial expressions and words often give little hint to the hurt they endure but it is there nonetheless.
Let’s not live oblivious! Let’s look beneath the surface to help release the hurt.
