Day 2780: Hurt people hurt people

“Hurt people hurt people” is something I just read on Twitter.  I believe that posting this today will help me make some minor adjustments and let go of hurts I’m holding for myself and other people.

Let’s see if there are any hurt people in my photos from yesterday.  No matter what, I trust that sharing my photos won’t hurt people.
















Here‘s “Hurt People Hurt People” by The Script:

Now I’m trying to think of phrases like this about other kinds of people that might work,  such as ….

Bully people bully people

Jam people jam people

School people school people

Smart people smart people

Stiff people stiff people

Great people grate people

… and that hurts!   Getting help by searching for words that can be adjectives and verbs, I can add these …

Best people best people

Better people better people

Clear people clear people

Damn people damn people

Down people down people

Flush people flush people

Forward people forward people

Free people free people

Jolly people jolly people

Okay people okay people

Prompt people prompt people

Right people right people

Steady people steady people

Still people still people

Wrong people wrong people

… but I still like “Hurt people hurt people” best.

Feel free, people, to share hurts and any other feelings or thoughts in a comment below.

Thankful people thank people, so thanks to all who help me post these posts, including YOU.

  6. You know as well as I do, Ann, that this is only partially true because some hurt people just go on being hurt.

  7. Boss people boss people
    and in your case

  8. “Hurt people hurt people”. Makes you think. Maybe I will run that through my mind before I rush to irritation and bad thoughts when I feel wronged. We need to be patient. Now!
    Thanks Ann.

  9. That is a pretty amazing copy of Anna Karenina. She has your initials!

    It can go both ways i think: people who have never been hurt, may be less sensitive to others need; on the other hand, they could be sensitive enough to respect themselves and others so such hurt doesn’t take place at all or as often. I think it depends on an informed mind and upbringing.

  11. Henry Miller said that the most sensitive people are the ones whose hearts become hardest out of a need to protect themselves. It’s logical but I know some extremely sensitive people who are anything but hard-hearted.
