Forgive


Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. ~Suzanne Somers

Hi there

I entirely agree with this quote. Only one person can be forgiven and that is yourself...you are the one who holds the resentment, anger, and won't let it go.

I once read of an exercise where you visualized yourself chained to the other person in a figure eight. You then found a way to break those chains and free yourself. It is a powerful exercise that reminds us that we can only let ourselves go from the blaming and holding the hurts.

Happy days

I totally agree with this wholeheartedly ♥

If we can't forgive those who have hurt/wronged us then we continue to give them power over us.

It took me a very long time to make this a practice in my life.

Boy, this is a good one. The things we need to work on the most will eat us up from the inside if we don't learn to forgive and let go. One of the good things about forgiveness I've noticed is, after the first big one, I think it gets easier...
