hurt quotes

“It is better, in my opinion, to feel hurt than to feel numb.  While feeling numb may save you from momentary pain, hurt that is healed will save you from a lifetime of numbness.”  Stephanie Schneider

“Some old wounds never truly heal, and bleed again at the slightest word.” 
 George R.R. Martin

“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” ― C. JoyBell C.

Hurt Quotes

“There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.” 
 Erma Bombeck

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

“You can’t escape pain, at least I don’t think one can.  You can try to numb it out with alcohol, drugs and any other type of numbing thing, but the effect is that of using a blanket to warm us from the inner chill of the flu, our depths remaining tortured by its effects, uncomforted.  Perhaps it shouldn’t be our focus to end the pain itself, but to look and see what the pain is affecting in us.  What part of us, what thoughts, what imaginations, what desperation do we hear in our heads, do we see in our eyes, do we feel the most when we are lying in bed awake too tortured to sleep.  Pain is momentary, it will not last forever.  If we can take pain and use it like a powerful tool in understanding ourselves, our inner workings, our vulnerabilities, we will not only increase our mental and emotional strength, but if we look closely, we can smile in knowing it is those parts of us which will see the mountain top of what we are capable of; it is those parts of us which know the deepest of pain which will experience the deepest meaning of all we can be and the deepest experience of being alive.”  Stephanie Schneider 

“You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.” ― J.K. Rowling

“Why is there ever this perverse cruelty in humankind, that makes us hurt most those we love best?” 
 Jacqueline Carey

“I thought you were gone forever, I thought you’d walked away from everything, because I failed, because I destroyed the only thing that ever mattered to me. I waited for you to come, but you didn’t.” 
 Alexandra Adornetto

“When someone you love hurts you, there’s always a moment of reflex in pulling away from them.  But after that reflex is past, however, you always go back into their arms; for enduring their occasional painful blows seems so much more endurable than living a lifetime without another ounce of their love.”  Stephanie Schneider

“There are only so many times that you can utter ‘It does not hurt’ before it begins to hurt even more than the hurt. You become enlightened of the feeling of feeling hurt, which is worse, I am certain, than the existent hurt.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer

“Take it from me: If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging up your back and runing its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do-the only thing-is run.” ― Lauren Oliver

“But even when I stop crying, even when we fall asleep and I'm nestled in his arms, this will leave another scar. No one will see it. No one will know. But it will be there. And eventually all of the scars will have scars, and that's all I'll be--one big scar of a love gone wrong.” ― Amanda Grace

“When a man hurts you, it’s momentarily comforting to hear a friend tell you he wasn’t good enough for you; but after she leaves, you’re left with a tortured mind, thinking of all the times you hurt someone else…meaning we are all very undeserving of love, none of us are good enough for each other and it seems to me, by this definition, we should all perhaps simply be alone.”  Stephanie Schneider

“I wanted to be his life preserver, the thing that would keep him afloat. Instead, he became my anchor. And I’m tired of drowning.” ― Amanda Grace

“why can't we love the right people? what is so wrong with us that we rush into situations to which we are manifestly unsuited, which will hurt us and others? why are we given emotions which we cannot control and which move in exact contradiction to what we really want? we are walking conflicts, internal battles on legs.” ― Marian Keyes

“Our tendency in the midst of suffering is to turn on God. To get angry and bitter and shake our fist at the sky and say, "God, you don't know what it's like! You don't understand! You have no idea what I'm going through. You don't have a clue how much this hurts."  The cross is God's way of taking away all of our accusations, excuses, and arguments.  The cross is God taking on flesh and blood and saying, "Me too.” ― Rob Bell

“The deepest wounds aren't the ones we get from other people hurting us. They are the wounds we give ourselves when we hurt other people.” ― Isobelle Carmody

“Abruptly upon making up from a bitter fight, he would always whisper in my ear endearingly asking me what it is he was going to do with me.  For years I thought this meant he loved me, found me worth fighting for in order to keep me.  Now I realize as I sit here writing alone, his words reflected truth, as men’s words almost always do express exactly what they mean; that he was looking at the exit built only for one, and I was there in his way.”  Stephanie Schneider
