"With forgiveness, your victim identity dissolves, and your true power emerges - the power of presence. Instead of blaming the darkness you bring in the light."
Who can you forgive today? Remember that forgiveness often has nothing to do with the other person--it's not about letting them off the hook or allowing for certain behaviors to continue. Stand up for yourself for sure; make changes to protect your sacred space. But this kind of forgiveness is simply about freeing yourself. Releasing. Letting. Shit. Go. for the sake of your sanity and internal peace.
I was feeling oddly crunchy the past few days until I realized, just this morning thanks to the quote above sent out via The Daily Love, that I had lingering unforgiving thoughts towards 2 people in particular. What the hell was the sense in holding on to them? What point was that proving, and to whom? I already know what I learned. I already know I am worthy of better and am safely on that path. Basically the only person being affected here is me, which is placing myself in a victim role I have no desire to play.
Frankly, I don't want to blame the darkness. I don't want to blame anyone or anything.
That's just giving away my power.
Bringing the light,
