Secretly everyone likes to think that they could win the hunger games.

Secretly everyone likes to think that they could win the hunger games.
That if we were faced with a crisis situation, we would embrace our inner macgyver & defeat the odds. We all want to be invincible!

Admitting you were vulnerable & hurt, requires us to swallow our pride. Pride that we are not infallible & in complete control of our emotions. That maybe, we aren't quite as perfect as macgyver & his perfectly coiffed mullet... Dang it!

More often than not 'struggling to forgive someone' is not so much about forgiving the other person who wronged you. It is actually about learning to forgive ourselves for allowing ourselves to be hurt in the first place...

Forgiving takes enormous courage. It requires fierce strength to let go of bitterness. Well, that's my thought for the day!

that is why, for christs sake, i delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. for when i am weak, then i am strong. - 2 corinthians 12:10


there is no need to be ashamed of tears, for tears bear witness that a man has the greatest of courage, the courage to suffer - frankl
