Forgetting/Forgiving

Forgetting/Forgiving

I know your supposed to forgive people and move on with life. Yeah, that is hard to do, well for me it is. Why? Because all I think about is how a person did me wrong or harmed me, and then I do not know why they did it. I am left feeling lost and confused. I have a hard time forgetting the past and forgiving those in my past, I mean all of it all the bad and that is probable my biggest problem I feel like I still live in the past and that is not cool. I try to forget about it, but pain and anger will not let me, I do not know why I am still this way, I try to not think about stuff. This is something I am working on I need to let it all go and really move on with my life. Try not to seek revenge and be happy with my life. Try to forgive those who has brought harm my way.

I heard that by forgiving a person you help yourself. You can release the emotions it can bring by holding on to it and it helps with built up anger. You are not doing any good by holding on to the hurt. I pray that I can forgive people because this feeling of holding on or wanting to hurt back is not good. I am learning day by day how to forgive. Have you felt like you could not forgive someone? Was it hard to forgive? What do you think?

Thank you for reading.

  1. Think of holding on to pain, hurt, and anger like some shitty smelling, heavy baggage that person told you to carry for the rest of your life. So there you are, holding these heavy ass bags, your arms are aching and your back is straining. You are pissed because it’s all so heavy and you can barely breathe because of the smell. You are thinking—what can I do to relieve myself of this discomfort and constant reminders of this person’s baggage? Imagine just dropping them to the ground and walking away. Now that those bags are on the ground you can simply walk away and stretch your arms out. You are free to use your arms to embrace new relationships, use your hands to pick beautiful flowers for yourself and they smell so damn good it makes you smile. The further you get from the smelly baggage the less you think about them and the person that gave them to you. You are free to go and do more productive things. I once read that not forgiving someone and holding on to the hurt and pain that they caused is like taking poison and hoping the other person dies. I was like, “Wow!” Holding onto those negative emotions will fester and grow until they invade your physical body and cause damage. Once I started letting go of all that shit, I started feeling better in my body and mind. It takes time. Also remember, Hurt People Hurt. Instead of constantly dwelling on why these people hurt me, I decided that my time would be better spent thinking of ways to protect myself from future pain by setting up boundaries without closing my heart off completely. Closing your heart will block out future pain, but it will also block future happiness. You don’t want to feel numb either (I’ve done that for years). Nothing is wrong with being Vulnerable; we just have to make sure we are not inviting in more dark energy by cutting ourselves off from energy vampires. Look at the people in your circle and figure out why you are attracting them. This helped me to move forward. Forgive them and forget their asses. They don’t deserve the space they are taking up in your brain. Much luck and love to you
