Pain, hurt and hate, the emotions we despise the most. It got me thinking tonight though, don’t you think it’s interesting that the wrongdoing could have happened something like 10 years ago, and yet we still feel the pain, hurt or anger as though the wound were made yesterday? This is our ego hanging on for dear life.
The ego wants to see the person who wronged us suffer. It wants to see them ‘pay’ for their crime. But remember, vengeance is often so exhausting that when you see your perpetrator pay for his crime, you often don’t feel any better. That is because your higher self doesn’t like to see fellow human beings suffer. Your ego does.
