I believe that one of the greatest blessings that we bestow on to other people is the gift of learned lessons.

A long time ago, I made up my mind, that I would never allow another hurt to go in vain.
After any kind of hurt, I always would stop and see what it was that I would take from it – what kind of a lesson.
I would then put it in the little, “storage bin” in my head and pull it out if the opportunity ever arose to do so – to be able to help someone out in their time of need. It really made the bad times not so bad.

So, if you find yourself at the center of hurt – any kind of hurt – stop for a minute and see what it is that you could take out of it and be able to offer it up for the better of someone else’s life.black-and-white-photography-tumblr-quotespopular-photography----blog-archive----black-and-white-hope-z3l0joos
