More than two decades have now passed since the day my nephew; Phillip, got badly injured by an empty broken bottle.

We were playing outside our homestead when he veered off our playing ground and stepped on a precarious bottle thrown in the woods. He bled profusely; and it took the strength of my mother to lift him up, clean the deep wound and quickly got him stitched at the Mvurwi District Hospital.

The unfortunate incident of Phillip’s injury has lingered in my mind for years now. It was so terrifying and totally unbearable for us as youngsters then.

In that same vein, there are so many people who have been emotionally cut over the years but have not healed ever since. They have tried to heal themselves but they just can’t. Other people have tried to assist them to heal but they continue their emotional bleeding every minute of their lives. They just can’t heal.

However; in as much as we have encountered emotionally draining situations, we can’t continue to bleed profusely without any sign of emotional healing. Such a situation is dreadful, and counterproductive to both our professional and personal development.

Emotionally wounded people have a tendency of bleeding on everyone, including people who did not cut them. Their emotionally charged vengeance comes in the form of:

  1. If they lost property to a close ally, they suspect everyone who tries to befriend them.
  2. If they lost their fiancée, they suspect everyone who greets their new spouse.
  3. If they were once abused, they may emotionally charge at everyone who could have erroneously stepped on their toes.
  4. If they have been betrayed many times; they may try to live in a closed circuit, never allowing anyone to penetrate their personal space.
  5. If they have been forsaken in their time of need, they may hate all their relatives and close friends.
  6. If a certain pastor conned them, they may build mistrust towards all pastors trying to help them.
It is an extremely dangerous situation to emotionally bleed on everyone you come across. You may feel vindicated in doing so, but in the long run you may kill all your relationships and supply line that were meant to take you to another level.

Notwithstanding the depth of the emotional wounds that you were cut; you have to learn to pick yourself up, move on and build new bridges. Learn from the past, but don’t stay in it. It will not help you anything other than causing you untold suffering in the long run.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”Romans 8:28.

Be strong and move on with life.
