You Free Yourself

I know I have written a lot of posts over the years about forgiveness. It’s something I think I’ll always write about because I cannot stress how important it truly is in this life to forgive… To forgive one self. To forgive others. To forgive your wrongs, the things you think others have done to wrong you, and so on. Forgiveness doesn’t equate to saying, hey I’m just fine with what you did or said or how you treated me… Forgiveness doesn’t mean you forget. There is a huge difference. It simply means you let go of the power it has over you. You let go on the chains, you choose to bind yourself with, buy hanging on. You simply let it go. And in doing so, in letting go, in forgiving, in breaking the chains, you free YOURSELF…

You will screw up in this life. Others will screw up in this life. People will make decisions that you don’t agree with. People will hurt you. You will hurt people. People will let you down. You will let people down. Guess what? It’s called life. Often it isn’t intentional, often it could not be avoided. Other times it most certainly could. Regardless as to the reasons anyone does or says what they do, realize each individual has the right to make those choices for themselves. And YOU have the right to forgive them and be free of the attachment. What you are attached to is something that makes you feel shitty, so why on earth would hang on to it? Keeping yourself attached to anger for another, hurt from another, ill feelings does what for you? Makes you feel ill, makes you feel hurt, and makes you feel angry?

It’s within your power to let it all go, by choosing to simply forgive. Accept people for who they are, including yourself. And if there are people in your life that do not bring positive feelings, do not enhance and enrich your life, ask yourself whether or not those are people you wish to continue to give your power and energy too. Sometimes no matter how much we care about others, if they are hurting us or contributing more negative to our lives then positive, it may be time to really look at what the relationship is and what needs to be done about it. Letting go… Forgiving… These are key things we must all do in our lives…
