Our spiritual practice of loving-kindness toward all beings helps us join this tougher skin to a tender heart.  This is how hurts help us find our own potential for unconditional love and unconditional compassion.  People do things that injure us, but later we realize that was how they pushed us through a gate in ourselves that we never guessed was there.  The hurt we felt was the sensation of being pushed.
