How to Mend a Broken Heart: Day 21
FORGIVE. Forgiveness is something that can be hard. We can get so stuck in the past…fuming and steaming over something that happened or how someone did us wrong…and guess what? We stay in the past when that happens and it brings up all those negative emotions. Forgiving is letting go of old hurts and anger. Forgiveness gives us the permission to move forward. Forgiveness allows us to live in the present with more joy and happiness. Who doesn’t want that? Is there a situation that immediately comes up for you surrounding the word forgiveness? You can forgive yourself, as well. Forgive and let go. It’s that letting go part that is absolutely freeing!
For me, there was a time after my husband’s death that I really didn’t like some people. I referred to them as “The assholes”. After many months, I realized that it made me feel bad to call them assholes. It brought all sorts of negativity to my life. I didn’t like how I felt when I thought about them. I didn’t like how they had treated me. I was stuck in a negative way of thinking and it was affecting me. I started to say “they tried” and I forgave them. I let all that hurt, anger and go and allowed my wounds to heal. It was one of the biggest realizations of my life….they were doing the best they could with where they were.
Who do you want to forgive? What do you think will happen when you do ? (By the way, it does NOT have to be something they know about, just something you have done within you!) What will you be letting go of when you forgive? Will that be anything significant for you? How would you like to move forward? Will there be more joy and happiness in the present? Let go and forgive. Peace, love and silver linings, peeps!
