Holding on to a grudge only weighs you down.
We’ve all been wronged by somebody, and I’m sure if we’re honest enough with ourselves, we’ve also wronged others as well. Playing blame games, pointing fingers, and feeling like a victim, do very little to help us move forward in life.
It’s not easy, it often feels outright impossible. When people hurt us, letting it go is the last thing on our mind. We’ll replay the events, kick ourselves a bit, think negative thoughts of them, and those moments are just full of toxicity, that we may not realize how much we’re poisoning ourselves.
I’m not saying everyone deserve forgiveness, or even second chances, if you’ve been reading my stuff, you know I’m not an idealist. I’m saying we deserve peace from holding on to such negativity in our lives.
That goes for ourselves as well. We’re going to make mistakes in life, we’ll need to remember to forgive ourselves sometimes too. There’s very little coming from continually beating ourselves over things, so why do it?
We decide the life we live, and the things we carry with along that journey. Often pain, resentment, blame, shame, guilt, come for the ride, only because we choose not to let go. Life can be lighter, if we allow it to be.
