No amount of regret will undo something that was done or said.
If we choose to hold onto a past hurt, we are the ones that are hurting ourselves. When we choose to hold onto hurt, we took over the role as the one doing the hurting. When we choose to allow pride to keep us from reaching out to the other party, we are the one who is hurting ourself. We don’t have to let the past, that cannot be changed, to rule our present.
To hold onto the hurt is to deprive yourself and someone else of a beautiful relationship.
Hurtful words can cut deep. But the deepest cut isn’t really the hurtful words at all, but rather the lost relationship and love if the two parties involved don’t put the past to rest and begin fresh.
