People Who Hurt the Most, Hurt the Most

Have you ever had an interaction with someone where they took huge offense to something you said that to you seemed like no big deal? ⃰

Think of it like this:  imagine that person had a splinter in their hand, and then they shook hands with you.  There’s no question it was a painful experience for them, but was it you that hurt them, or are they just hurting?

Sometimes it has nothing to do with you and the best thing you can do is to apologize and forget it.  There’s great consolation in the phrase, “this is not about me.”

People who hurt the most, hurt the most – get it?

⃰ Caveat – if this is your tenth time, maybe you really are the jerk they claim you to be!
