Hurt left an indelible scar on my soul.
I cannot run from it.
I cannot hide from it.
I cannot pretend it does not exist.
It has a prominent role in who and what I am.
It will have a part in who and what I become.
So rather than run from hurt I have chosen to embrace it.
I will let it overwhelm me, but only for a moment.
I will learn from it.
I will grow from it.
I will gain strength from it.
I will determine what my scar will represent and it will not be a symbol of pain it will be a symbol of strength, of survival, of rebirth.
Hurt left an indelible scar on my soul
but it won’t stop me from moving forward once again with no regrets and no remorse.
