💕 Who here has had their feelings hurt?
I know I have!
But let’s take a moment to talk about our feelings. According to the Google dictionary, the feelings are described as, “Emotional states or reactions”. Emotional state, huh? That means it’s not permanent because it’s only a state! Happy, sad, angry, hurt, tired, grouchy, elated… none of them last. And when that can sometimes be a good thing when the feeling is negative, you also have to note that happy feelings don’t last either. No feelings last forever, that’s why we keep having new ones. Good or bad, feelings are just an emotional state we are in.
They are also described as “reactions”. How we react to something is our feeling about it. Makes sense, because situations are what create feelings. That’s how we get our feelings hurt. This also means that technically, we can CHOOSE what our feelings will be. We can choose how we react to situations, right? Therefore, we can choose what feelings we have about it! WE get to decide whether or not the situation is going to hurt our feelings, or whether it’s going to be ok! Let that sink in for a second!
So next time you FEEL as if your feelings were hurt, take a moment to MAKE that decision for yourself, don’t let it be made for you! And then also remember that if you DO still feel hurt, that the moment won’t last. It’s only a state.
This year, don’t just follow your heart, LEAD your heart! Our feelings are like children, fleeting, always changing their minds, and never knowing quite what’s right for them. So as my devotions said, “Put them in the backseat and tell them where YOU’RE going!” 🙌🏻
