Is your heart hurt?
The genesis of hurt is a lengthy story. Everyone has their own version. Some are more emotional than others and they have left the hurt very bitter. Blames are thrown right, left, and center with the promise of revisiting the hurt in the name of revenge.
Well, nature has different news for you. She will only ‘make you whole again’ if you abide by her rules. First, you have to understand the origin of your hurt. Was your heart truly hurt or did you hurt yourself? Most people will definitely be defensive and claim that it was not their fault.
Emotionally detach yourself from your hurt. This is a big win. Thereafter, take a step back and evaluate what really hurt you.
Causes of hurt.
Who would not be hurt by rejection? Almost everyone would, except the emotionally numb ones. Rejection could damage your self-esteem and you start questioning what it is that you lack.
Imagine your people refusing to be associated with you. They treat you as an outcast and even treat strangers better than you. Ouch! You may not recover from it soon. Except only if you allow nature to heal you completely.
Do not take rejection so personally. Other people’s opinions about you will remain just that – opinions. Let it not affect you because it is not the truth. You know better. Can you imagine arguing with someone else that what you are holding is a cup, yet they insist it is a spoon?
Their perception of what you are holding to be a spoon will not change the reality that it is a cup. This is how you should view rejection. It will completely ruin you if you take every opinion into mind.
Unmet expectations from people you thought highly of could hurt you. You had put your hopes on them yet they fail you miserably. That was a bad investment. Sadly, some of the people you trusted completely do not even bother to explain why they failed you.
It is normal to have expectations. The only point you faulted is looking entirely up to someone else to fulfill your expectations. That is what will hurt.
Whenever you expect something from someone, give room for failure. It is not entirely a bad idea to entertain that possibility.
You will appreciate your expectations being met and still understand when they are not. This will make it not hurt that much.
Discouragement too hurts. It hurts when you try something severally and still do not succeed. Maybe what hurts most is that you failed yourself and have no one to blame. You will be discouraged and it may put off your spirit.
The good news is that failure does not spell doom to you. It is just another chance for you to learn how not to do something. You will definitely not repeat it next time and this will boost your chances of success.
It is almost impossible not to get hurt from expectations. You just need to pat yourself on the shoulder and move on. Nature will heal you from all hurt if you let her.
Sickness causes both physical and emotional hurt. Your body stops functioning normally yet you cannot help it. You seek medical help and hope the medication will help you recover.
Diseases have been part of human life for the longest time. Some have succumbed to it but many more have recovered from it and become stronger.
Take comfort in nature’s healing ability to make it all go away.
How can nature heal all your hurt? Even when you solely hurt yourself, mother nature will swiftly come to your rescue.
Unmerited favor to heal rejection.
Favor is good things being skewed in your direction even when you least deserve it. The universe can conspire to favor you in due time.
Initially closed doors will open for you. The same people who wanted to do nothing with you will look for you upon realizing your worth. They will apologize and make it up to you.
There is no explanation as to how the universe channels such high traffic of favor your way. Do not rely on your strength, trust nature to compensate for your hurt.
A second chance to heal unmet expectations.
Unmet expectations are not the end of it all. Nature offers a second chance for you to try again. Although other people may fail you, in her wisdom, nature will allow you to do it yourself.
Do not be in a hurry for a second attempt. If you do not wait for the right time to be gifted by nature, you may hurt yourself more than how it was the first time.
A second chance is a golden opportunity to wipe your tears of hurt. This is because you have learned one more way of how not to do what it is you were doing.
An environment for meditation to heal your discouragement.
Discouraged people often withdraw from people. They want to spend time alone and cry their hearts out. The thought of recovering from their hurt is never in their diary, at least not for the moment.
Nature’s calm environment can silently offer you a shoulder to lean on. It gives you the peace that is lacking elsewhere. You can meditate on the good things you are planning and reminiscence your past achievements.
Meditation will help you overcome your current hurt from discouragement.

There are many ways of dealing with hurt but nature’s path is the surest one. You just need to be patient and pay attention to her. You will soon forget it ever happened.
