Life involves having to deal with situations and
Experiences that cause pain and hurt are just part of the human experience and we have to learn how to deal with them which can be very difficult sometimes.
Life does not come with a "How to live life without having to deal with difficult experiences" manual. In fact these painful experiences act as catalyst to help propel us forward in growth.
Through personal pain there is ALWAYS gain of some sort. Unfortunately it can be very difficult to find the gain when we are living through the pain, but push on it will come.
To be able to break free from the suffering associated with the pain, we have to go through the hurt, the upsets and the emotions of the experience rather than sweeping them under the rug.
Once you take the time to go through the experience and process what it has to teach you, then and only then will the hurt go away.
So, don't shy away from the suffering, because the longer you do the more you suffer and the longer you will hurt.
Also remember as you go through life's struggles that you have a personal helping spirit team of spiritual healers that are guiding you through the maze of life. They always have your back and are supporting you in ways you cannot imagine.
You are NOT alone in your journey, ask for help and your helping spirit team will assist you however they can.
Never, EVER, GIVE UP!
