You will hurt someone.
Someone will hurt you.
That is just a fact of life. Things will be said and done to you that will sadden, irritate and anger you. (You all know what I’m talking about). Sometimes you want to keep the person in your life other times you damm them to hell! And it’s ok. Really, it is.
When you face these situations though, the best thing to do is to forgive. However, even though forgiveness is often difficult, refusing to forgive hurts you more than the person you’re angry with. It is like drinking poison and expecting your enemy to die. It doesn’t work that way.
Quite often the person:
a) may not know that they hurt you or that you took what they said/did so seriously.
b) knows and is enjoying the discomfort that it causes you
c) isn’t even aware that you are upset.
So what’ the point in having your knickers in a knot if you are the only one that it makes uncomfortable?
Wouldn’t it be better to take off the offending under garment and fix it it – wash it iron it if needed and in return have something as smooth as silk caressing your skin?
How many of us are walking around with a wound that keeps on rubbing at our private parts and annoying us even though no one else can see it?
Let it go.
The person who hurt you doesn’t care.
You are only giving yourself a mightily uncomfortable and long lasting rash! That’s why you forgive. Because it is good for YOU. It is all about YOU.
So tell that fear, anger, anxiety, guilt, and depression that you’ve been going through to F Off! …and Forgiveness and Freedom to Come On In!
