"Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. That’s not a possibility. It’s only when I believe a stressful thought that I get hurt. And I’m the one who’s hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I don’t have to get someone else to stop hurting me. I’m the one who can stop hurting me. It’s within my power."
very powerful words. something i need to realize and do. i don't want to be hurt by people's words any more. it's their words not mine. i choose how to take what they say. yes, they can be hurtful, but it is up to me to let it go and realize they are the ones hurting not me.
