We all are going to get accidentally and intentionally hurt by others because we’re all human. When we do get hurt (especially when there is no intent), we need to understand the purpose of pain, the purpose of guilt and be able to sit with the discomfort of both. We are responsible to validate and express our pain, while also NOT hurting back. We do not need to “take away” the guilt the other person feels, even when they hurt by accident. Guilt teaches us a lesson. Listen to hear how Heidi managed her emotions when she was physically hurt (by accident!) recently. Hear how this applies to the emotional pain we experience and unintentionally do to others.
