Show Notes

Where does Hurt Go?

  • Anger – Anger is the only place hurt goes that Jesus experienced. It is ok to be angry. It is not ok to sin in your anger.
  • Fear – Having been hurt we are worried that our need will again not be met or taken from us. It causes us to be timid or even not express the need in the first place.
  • Guilt – We begin to feel like the hurt is our fault. That, in fact, we deserved to be hurt.
  • Self-condemnation – We feel like we don’t deserve or qualify to have that (or any) emotional need met. It’s not that it’s our fault (guilt) we just aren’t worthy to have that need met.
  • Joy – Positive emotions should be a part of all of our lives. However, as hurts build up, there is no room for good feelings. This is what leaves many feeling…numb.
  • When our “cup” is full, negative things come out of the top like addictions, obsessions, depression, anxiety, espcaping, restlessness, and more.
  • The only way to “fix” these things is to have comfort attached to these hurts. We will talk about this in our next episode.
