The Wounded Heart

The heart beats strongly and loves deeply, but it is fragile. The heart can so easily be wounded and bruised.  Sometimes we go into relationships that nourish us, heal us, and enrich our lives. There are other times when we go  into relationships  hoping that they will nourish or heal our wounds,  and yet we come away feeling depleted and more wounded than when we went in. 

What I have found important to remember is that in those relationships that have hurt us when we feel wounded and as though we have lost something we really have been given greater gifts than we could have imagined. We have been given the gift of knowledge and experience, which is irreplaceable and invaluable. We have also we have been given the gift of strength because when we look back at those moments when we thought we couldn’t go on, and then look at ourselves in the present we realize that we not only made it through the experience, but we are stronger and  better off for the experience. 

The true healing does not come from us jumping into another relationship hoping for someone else to heal us, but in appreciating the lessons and the strength that were gained from the experience. 

Are you appreciating your wounds?

Love and blessings in divine order,
