The gift of forgiveness is one that many do not know how to accept.
We think being able to forgive is about someone else but it is actually about us.
Forgiveness frees us from the negative energy that destroys our ability to think, our relationships and our health.
I wasn’t always able to forgive.
I viewed that world far too often from my own perspective.
I failed to separate the person from the act or words that caused the problem.
When I learned the difference between forgiveness and forgetting, I learned how to forgive.
I also began to forgive myself.
Forgiving is not forgetting.
Forgiving is about releasing a burden you were never meant to carry.
Forgiving frees us to live in the present.
“The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.” – Maya Angelou
