* Break the Chain

This message came round on Facebook this morning. I wanted to share with you too. Val x

break the hurt chain

“Hurt people hurt people.

That’s how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation.

Break the chain today.

Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with kindness.

Greet grimaces with smiles.

Forgive and forget about finding fault.

Love is the weapon of the future.”

Yehuda Berg

Break the chain

Break the chain and break free
