Truth Bomb Facebook video of the day : I never knew how strong I was until I had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry and accept an apology that was never given. T
ruth be told, I didn’t realize how POWERFUL this video would be and how much people need to learn to forgive. A common mistake with forgiveness is that we seem to think it’s for the other person, when in reality its for ourselves. The person who has done you wrong may: 1. Not Know 2. Not Care. Either way you are left with the broken pieces to put yourself back together. Forgiveness is like cleaning up your OWN side of the street. You control what happens on your side and in order to get moving again you must make space for new love and experiences. I choose forgiveness because I know I’ve been dealing with forgiving my father for not being in my life growing up and as we work to build a relationship with one another, I must forgive him for the past in order to start a NEW healthy relationship. Forgiveness frees you from carrying around negative disempowering beliefs and allows you to take control of our lives. Understanding that the past cannot be change. You must accept it and move forward. Honestly, I’ve avoided this topic for over a decade because it was “easier” for me to resent him and have a negative place in my heart for him. Truth be told, my resentment for him resurfaced as an insecurity in my romantic relationships. I held on WAY longer in relationships that NEVER deserved my love and attention to begin with because I was subconsciously trying to fill a void in my life. I needed to forgive my father for myself. I needed to share my story with the world, so everyone can join in on the healing process. Here are a few steps to get you closer to being WHOLE. Tip 1: Forgiveness Is For You.
Forgiveness does not mean you condone what has happened. It means your not going to carry the bitter around with you. You are choosing to release these negative thoughts and emotions. You choose to open yourself back up to be FREE.
Forgiveness opens the heart up again for love and light. Tip 2: Accepting that it doesn’t have to happen right away. Not being able to forgiveness someone right away doesn’t make you a bad person.
