You Are Not Meant to Stay Wounded

“By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to be compassionate & wise.”

-Caroline Myss

We are not meant to stay wounded. In fact, by staying in our hurt, we not only are harming ourselves but also others. The longer we sink into our dark abyss, the more we are prone to lashing out at those closest to us.

If left in our private personal torment long enough, we become a prisoner to it’s control over us. It becomes harder to escape. Eventually, we may lose ourselves entirely to it. However, there is a way for us to escape.

By practicing mindfulness and striving to look positively at life, we are in essence cultivating a stronger, more emotionally stable version of ourselves. Those emotional and mental gymnastics prepare us to accept and overcome future hardships.

Most vital to our happiness in life is the ability to curate an environment of peace, love, and balance. In doing so, we build upon our emotional IQ and prepare ourselves to fight with our heart and our soul.

However, in those moments when we feel that all is lost we must strive to remember these words.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; Only love can do that.

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
