Don’t Hurt People Back When They Hurt You

Don’t hurt people back when they hurt you.

It’s a life lesson I’ve learned the hard way. 

It’s so unnatural that it only drove me to tears.
I’ve been hurt, betrayed, and cheated on since childhood. 
I don’t totally understand why this kind of exposures to persons and situations have been allowed in my own life. 
I’m probably a poor judge of character despite what I know.
Or, God simply wants me to learn and grow and deepen me through it ...
And use me as a vessel in His mission to help “heal the broken-hearted” going through the same.

“He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.” (Psalm 147:3)
I think I also know the pain that Jesus must have felt when he looked out, having done no wrong, and cried, “Father, forgive them!”
