Our lives are filled with hurt and pain caused by those we love. We’re human beings, it happens. Wounds from our past don’t need to live on as permanent scars. If we consider these unforgettable moments as times of growth, then the lesson learned is the reward. Let’s be honest, it’s not that easy, but it is possible. You’re probably thinking I’m crazy, because the wound is so deep that forgiveness and forgetting is completely seen as impossible. I’m even second guessing myself right now as certain people and events flash through my mind. Like I said, we’re human. Maybe you’ll never forget what happened, but you can forgive.

The best reward from life experiences is what insight we gain. Honestly, you don’t want to make that mistake again. Mistakes happen, it’s just the natural flow of life. Learning from them keeps you mentally fit. What you get out of life experiences, good and bad is what life is truly about. There is always some underlying lesson from everything we go through. Take what matters most to you and gives you greater insight to who you truly are. Overall, it helps you become a better person. I’m not saying to jump on the phone and call everyone. It’s just something to think about…
