“It’s not what people do to us that hurts us..

in the most fundamental sense, it is our chosen response to what they do to us that hurts us..”
-Stephen Covey

Agree. It just depends on how you look at the situation (as if I can relate). Anyway, bottom line is, however you want to look at it, the fact is that you were still hurt. But then again, optimism does help. Hehe :-D
