The Fate of Forgiveness
“When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power” ~Unknown
We all are quite familiar with the conceptual knowledge that forgiveness is not for the person you are forgiving but for you right? And although this is true, the process of actually formulating your mind and spirit to actively and consciously forgive someone is a tedium task. It is not one that comes over night nor does it come with a brush of a cool breeze. Truth be told it can take long spans of time. In some cases you may even have to have certain levels of forgiveness or go back and forgive again. When wounds are reopened and the remembrance of situations that you pushed so incredibly far back that you actually fooled yourself temporarily of forgetting, remind you of the actual occurrence, the salt in the wound aches all over again. Therefore making it almost impossible to let go and truly release. In this season of my life I am experiencing a level of adulthood that is requiring me to forgive and let go. It is quite a challenge because the pain, infinite inquiries and judgement has been a great deal of what has always caused me pain in my life but I am taking steps to release it. Not that I intentionally desire to hold onto the hurt but because sometimes you will never truly understand or perhaps it is not meant for you to understand but to take the experience for what it was and let it go and not haunt nor control your life and interfere with you truly living and seeing life through the eyes of one that have persisted to overcome one of the greatest adversities.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.
