There’s that old saying, “Two wrongs don’t make a right”.
It couldn’t be more true. Think I would have figured that out by now, huh?
Something bad happened. I got hurt by it. Deeply wounded, shaken to my very core. For me – it was probably one of the worst things. It kicked me right in my trust issues. Hard.
I began question everything. There was a part of me screaming to run away before I got hurt again…because you know, for me, there’s always that thought that it’s only a matter of time. And being hurt, well…it hurts. No one likes that, now do they?
And then, in a moment of feeling afraid and confused and oh-so-vulnerable, I reacted to this hurt by doing something stupid of my own. Something stupid and wrong and hurtful. I kicked him right in a whole bunch of his issues when he was already feeling rotten.
This has added a whole other layer of hurt to the entire situation.
We both made mistakes. Two wrongs.
But now – how do we make it right? How do we make it better when we’re both drowning in a sea of hurt and confusion?
