It hurts sometimes when you're told something you don't want to hear. It hurts sometimes when you don't get your way. You don't like it and sometimes wish things would just go your way...not gonna happen! You want to ask, and get, what you ask for...sometimes, even if it hurts. There's always a price for what you want.
Yes, I know...sometimes it feels like you can't win. When you ask for honesty, you get harsh, abrasive words that don't seem fitting for any action that you've performed. When you ask for soft or sweet words, you get a load of crap that you know are 90% lies! When you ask for wisdom, you get what someone thinks that is in no way wise or even beyond their narrow-minded view of the world. Ouch...just the thought hurts a little.
When you have an ouch moment...just grab a handful of reflection, a cupful of humility, a pinch of patience, and just a smidgen of confidence. Think about what you ask for. Accept it with an open heart and mind...minus the pride. Wait for what you want instead of chasing it and be confident in knowing that the sting of what you need begins to dull more and more as you gain a clearer understanding of yourself.
It's beautiful to be you...transformingly beautiful.
