How do you react when somebody hurts you?
(I’m about to get brutally honest.)
Sometimes, I get upset when David says something that hurts my feelings. I’m really not mad…I’m SAD.
But, I’m not brave enough to admit to him that he has the power to hurt me. Because, somehow, that makes me feel like I’m “less.”
Is this too much to share?
I have to calm down, go into a separate room, and pray about it. I ask God to help me get ahold of it.
“Ok Nicole, you’re not mad, you’re just sad. Now, be a big girl and don’t say anything stupid in retaliation.”
Whatever you do, DON’T throw a fit and leave! Talk about it.
“Hey, you know, you kind of hurt my feelings.” Have enough courage to communicate how you REALLY feel! It’s hard, but you can do it!
How do you handle hurt feelings? Can you tell me in one sentence?
