Anger, bitterness, regret, sadness are emotions people have surrounding negative situations. Those are real, authentic, and necessary emotions to fully experience at the time. However, when we look back (sometimes years and years later) it's important to identify the ways we are better now. This is not to say we're "glad" a bad thing happened to us, sometimes the thing is dark and wrong and not something we would wish on our worst enemy, but it's about acknowledging the personal transformation that happens after it. Because we can't go back and change it, we have to find a way to use our pain...find a way to be better off healed.
Today's words by author Beth Moore.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
