There are people in this world who are going to hurt you. Most will not do it on purpose, though some may. Don’t let that change how you approach the world. If you are open and vulnerable, there will sometimes be pain. I am not going to lie to you – it will hurt. And it is also where you have the opportunity to dig deep, find the learning, and grow. You don’t have to search out the pain but don’t live a life that totally avoids it either.
