Emotional hurt is just like physical hurt. The more we revisit and touch it, the longer it takes to heal.

I like what Nelson Mandella said...

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.

Let no man, woman, or situation hold you captive! Holding on to hurt, anger and bitterness imprisons and punishes YOU, not the person.

So when your mind wants to revisit a place of pain and hurt, don’t you let those prison doors close on you. Think on things in your life that are positive .... things that were NOT promised, but Grace gave you anyway.... like that breath you just took.
