What Hurts?

The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for. — Bob Marley 

It’s a fact. At one time or another, all the people you care about are going to hurt you. They can’t help it. They’re human, and humans are flawed. They screw up.

But they don’t do it on purpose (not usually, anyway). Things happen.

Remember, your ______________ (fill in the blank) isn’t any more perfect than you are, and life isn’t a fairy tale — you’re not Sleeping Beauty, he’s not Prince Charming and neither of you has a Fairy Godmother.

And while you have to decide which people in your life are worth suffering for, you also have do decide which hurts are worth suffering through. Because they aren’t created equal.

Sometimes love is stronger than pain.

But sometimes love simply isn’t enough.

And it’s important to know the difference.
