Healing the “little” heartaches

While I wanted to rely on a person, it was God who was steadfastly with me.

Unreturned texts, forgotten appointments, dismissive attitudes. These little so-called abandonments can leave us feeling vulnerable, unloved, and unwanted. We may develop a “thicker skin” or a “defensive wall” in an effort not to feel hurt again, but what can we do to really heal? Where do we start? 

We start with ourselves. We start by kindly noticing the ache in our own hearts. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, said, “If we would open their prison doors for the sick, we must first learn to bind up the broken-hearted” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 366). Sometimes we are the brokenhearted, and we need healing first.
