“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”
This quote is such a good reminder of how fallible we are as human beings. Over the course of our lifetimes we all experience being both the one who causes pain and the one who receives it. Life is messy and mistakes happen. Perhaps the most important thing for all of us to remember is that at our core, we rarely WANT to cause pain to another. We should all try to remember this so that forgiveness comes easier- both forgiveness for the one who may err us, and also forgiveness for ourselves when we are the one who has unwittingly caused pain to another.
When we keep this perspective, it is much easier to recognize those ‘worth suffering for’.
