The Art of Forgiveness

“When you give yourself to someone who doesn’t respect you, you surrender pieces of your soul that you’ll never get back. There comes a point when you have to let go and stop trying with some people. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll find a way to put you there. Sometimes you just need to let go and accept the fact that they don’t care for you the way you care for them. Let them leave your life quietly. Letting go is oftentimes easier than holding on. We think it’s too hard to let go, until we actually do. Then we ask ourselves, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”

You will begin to heal when you start to let go of regrets, forgive those who have hurt you and learn to forgive yourself. With time and courage you will be able to tell your story without pain in your heart, ache in your soul and without tears flowing down your cheek. That is when you know your healing has begun.”
~Brigitte Nicole

“People’s actions and reactions are beyond your control but how you react is within your control. Learn to forgive and let go of the pain. The anger you have must last only for 12 minutes. Beyond that, it’s your mind repeating the scenario in your head that controls you. It’s hard to forgive, but it is the only thing that will give you peace of mind. People may forget the things they did and words they had spoken, but those abusive or aggressive words still linger on your mind. Give yourself a break. Forgive and focus on how to improve your current situation. Your past, your disabilities do not define you. It is really up to you on how to direct your life. Focus on your life goals and remember, you can always seek help, and you have Him.”
