Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve likely been hurt by someone in the past few months, or even days. Maybe someone has said something ugly to you, or even behind your back. (That’s happened to me and it’s so very painful.) The saying, “sticks and stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you” is a lie. Words sting! They can cut deep into our souls and make us question ourselves.
Do you remember when you started noticing boys? First you dreamed that they would glance your way. When they finally did, you’d giggle in excitement with your friends! Then you took it a step further and dreamed about the day they would speak to you! And, oh how exciting that day was!
As I talk to women I’m amazed how alike all of us really are. We may look different, but deep down inside we are all the same – broken people that are hurting in some form or fashion. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at a few of the conversations I’ve had over the past few months.
