Really think about this for a moment. Do. You. Love. Well?
Loving well means that you forgive easily.
The closer the person is to us, the harder this can be. You’d think it would be easier to forgive someone that we love and hold dear to us. Yet, this is where the most pain can occur. One way to gauge if you have forgiven someone is when you think of them, do you want the best for them or are you thinking negative thoughts?
Forgiveness isn’t for them; it is for YOU!
When you do not forgive, you give all the power to the person you are struggling with. You experience feelings of fear, guilt, anger, self-sabotage, laziness, envy, and lack of focus, which are OolaBlockers. Of these blockers, anger tends to be the one that takes its grip and holds on to you when it is a struggle to forgive.
Letting go means it still happened.
Letting go of the anger of what was said and done to you doesn’t make what happened to you irrelevant – it still happened. The question is, do you want the situation that caused the hurt to control how you live your life and view the world? Or, do you want to acknowledge it happened and forgive, so you can live a life that is brighter, lighter, more open to you? The choice is yours.
Positively Powerful Strategy:
Here is a strategy to try:
- Divide a paper in half.
- At the top of the right side write “Let Go” and on the left side “Hold On.”
- Under “Hold On,” write all the things that you feel and everything you are missing because you are holding on to not forgiving this person. Include sickness, weight gain or loss, lack of focus, etc.
- Under “Let Go,” write all the things that could appear and everything you could do or feel if you forgave.
This activity is meant to show you how much richer your life can be by forgiving those who wronged you.
