To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on September 10, 2014 in Picture Quotes

Don’t wait for years for anyone who hurt you to “make it up to you” and keep your old wounds from healing. Waiting for them to change is not the answer. They may never change. Inner peace is found by changing yourself, not the people who hurt you. And you change yourself for yourself, for your joy, your serenity, your peace of mind, understanding, compassion, laughter, and your bright future that you will get.

    This is so true, because you can only change yourself, not other people. If you wait for the person or people that have hurt you to change, then you may be waiting forever.

    Or you can choose to ignore them and get on with your own life focusing on the ones who love you and treat you right.

    There is a solution to end sorrow but it can’t come from imperfect man made governments,only the one who created all things can do it because He cares about us. People can bring us comforting words but those words have a temporary effect while under Gods kingdom rule over us on earth in peaceful conditions any bad memories will be erased and we will find out what true happiness really is ( Revelation 21: 3,4)
