When you go through difficult times and people hurt you, which they will, and your heart is broken, I encourage you to not allow your heart to grow hard and cold. Let mean and broken people be who they are without allowing them to change you!! Give your broken heart to God to heal and to protect it and pray for a strong yet tender heart! Take it from me, when we choose to hide behind a hard heart to protect ourselves we end up hurting others and we miss out on so much love and relationship! As hard as it may be, pray for those who hurt you and trust God to comfort your broken and hurting heart…don’t lock it away.
