In so many ways, a lot of us have been hurt and the hurt that we carry inside now serves as a parameter to determine a whole lot that goes on in our lives.
Our hurts become a cloak that we use to cover ourselves, dampening the true person hidden beneath the bushel of pain.
Even though bad experiences cannot be easily chucked out of the window, these past hurts should not be the ruling yardstick over our lives.
Not only do they cut short our expectations, but we remain victims to the pain.
To heal, we have to and we must find a way to channel our painful tests into positive testimonies.
