She was the sun.

She was hoping that maybe someday he could be the moon, but he preferred to be the clouds on a gloomy day. Shielding her, but later producing a down pour that caused her to fully disappear. It's hard for the sun to make the diligent decision to come back out and shine for others on a daily basis when the one thing she got close to let her down. Instead of holding a grudge and harboring hurt, the sun learned to turn her hurt to happiness.
It sounds difficult, but when you love yourself enough despite the hurt -- that moon you were praying for will eventually come and join you. We should all be like the sun and focus on the happiness not the hurt. If you want to be more like the sun despite the hurt you've endured in the past or happen to be currently enduring, keep scrolling to see just how easy it is to put the hurt away and embrace happiness.

You Don't Have To Forget, But You Must Forgive

Before you do anything else, forgiveness is key. Whatever the situation may be. Holding a grudge or harboring the pain will never allow you to move on in a positive manner.

Figure Out Where Things Went Wrong

Figuring out where things may have went wrong will allow you to prevent this situation from happening in the future.

Get Out And Do What You Enjoy

Sitting around sulking all day won't bring you out of your funk. Get out and enjoy yourself. It probably sounds easier said than done, but baby steps. You'll appreciate it later on down the road.

Remember That It's A Journey

It's all a journey at the end of the day. Nothing happens over night. You will have those days where you wish things were back to how they once were, but remember that this is your personal journey and you are more than a conqueror. You got this.

Crack A Smile

Sounds tough? Just give it a try and make it a habit. The more you try to smile, the more you will remember what smiling felt like. Appreciate the authenticity of smile while you can. Kick that hurt to the curb.
You'll have your days.
You must realize that, but it will be so worth it.

How do you turn your hurt to happiness?

@jordanhamilton my go to comfort food
definitely at the top of my list as well @petname83
Absolutely agree @atmi. Nature is by far more serene and calming than anything for me too!!!
I started exercising alot. I do it to show myself I can improve and transform my life, then I apply that to any other situation that comes about. I started to see people as sugar in a way. When your trying to get fit, you walk by that candy section and want it so bad like you did before, but remember how it held you back from loving and improving yourself. So you let it sit right where it's at and keep going to a greater future. As you continue to improve, so does your confidence and understanding of what you truley want, deserve, and should be giving. Also, I meditate in the morning as soon as the Sun rise, for up to an hour. That inner peace and relaxation let's you know that you're not alone and greater is coming your way. These are just a couple options that helps me
Perfect example!!! I definitely think exercise is the best remedy for pretty much everything. And I love how you compared hurt to sugar. @keith2web
