If you’ve ever tasted a bitter gourd, you know what bitter is. And if you’ve ever cooked one, you know that it can still be made edible.
Bitter is…hiding yourself in a place no one can find you.
Bitter is…being unable to be honest with people you love.
Bitter is…coating your words with anger, hate and dislike.
Bitter is…avoiding things you cannot understand.
Bitter is…truth, love and care.
Most of all, bitter is a very well hidden, yet most visible layer on all of us. So when my heart is bitter, I try not to blame myself or think of myself as a bad person. Instead, I ask my heart, “What are you bitter about today?”
