Some people’s pain are bleeding. I have learned that when people are unkind towards you and they keep on hurting you; when you dig deeper, look further, and try to see things beyond the surface, these people are damaged from the inside out. They are simply projecting what they feel inside to everyone around them. That is why it is very important to be kind to everyone around you.
You can try to save them, but eventually you will fail, if they do not acknowledge it by themselves. If they refuse to change, you do not need to fight back, simply walk away. Love them from afar. Wish them well. Never think about revenge or bad karma. All they need is love, understanding, compassion and forgiveness. Imagine if it was you in their shoes, it must be really difficult for them. They do not know how to heal themselves. They have excessive and uncontrolled hatred deep within their hearts and souls.
The pain is not there for us to become bitter, but rather, all life’s hardships are there to teach us how to become stronger and wiser. Unfortunately, not everyone see it that way. Difficult times in our lives and mistakes are inevitable. We are all wounded, and scarred people. Two things happen, we either come out full of wisdom, or never come out at all.
Some people are stuck with the pain. They can’t surpass the darkness that they feel deep within their hearts and souls. They let trauma, hatred, and pain consume them. They would rather accept defeat, than to stand up and bounce back. As a result, they become toxic to be around. Hopefully someday, they will realise that once they face all their inner darkness within them, once they move forward beyond the pain, that is where true happiness begins. Remain calm, do not retaliate, stay kind and keep shining your light. Kindness, they need it the most! The world needs your light!
“Just because people are unkind to you, doesn’t mean you have to be unkind back. That’s how the world changes – one brave person like you being kind” ~ Bryant McGill
