For your consideration…

Our message came in via an Ed Sheeran song, Love Hurts. Sometimes this is true. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, unhappiness with self, a pet project that does not turn out as we HOPEd, etc., love can hurt.

Love can hurt because love and only love is real. And because love is real, it is also the healer. Love takes our hurt full circle and heals us, if we choose to let it. We have to choose to love ourselves, choose to let go of the hurt, choose to let go of anger, choose to let love in to heal us.

We are also reminded that we can let love heal us but we can not force it on others. Perhaps you have had a situation where there is a misunderstanding  with someone you love. No matter what you do, you can not find a way to heal it. This happens in families because we are so invested with each other. We share friends, relatives, experiences, etc. So when there is a misunderstanding feelings can be very hurt because of the deep and binding love we have invested for generations and even life times. So what do you do? You try everything you can think of and nothing seems to be working. You let go. You hold the loving space you have always had for this person and wait for them to come back. Sometimes things seem to be healed but reoccur. This is because we have to love ourselves first to let love heal us and all our situations. We can not be healed when we are not fully loving ourselves and others.

We are asked to remember that, “Yes, love can hurt but it always has the power to come full circle and heal.”

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
