men occupy a very small place upon the earth

Not everyone you meet is a lesson.
Not everyone hurts you just so you could learn to heal yourself.
Most of them come with hatchets and hammers, and none of them come with gauze.  None of them come with Band-Aids or a sewing kit.
Listen to me: not every pain you feel is a part of a bigger plan to force you to learn.
Stop forgiving people for hurting you because you think they helped you grow.
You helped yourself grow. You put all your limbs back together. You put your heart back inside your broken ribs and stitched your own chest up.
it was all you.
Stop giving people who hurt you credit for things they do not deserve.
