Forgiveness is key!
Forgiveness, is a word that use to make me feel uneasy, mainly because of past hurts I had concealed. I mean, it is really hard to forgive someone/persons when they have taken your good deeds for granted or hurt one of your nearest and dearest. However, through my reading and personal experiences I have been reminded that, forgiveness is key and the most important method that supports our well being, without practicing this method frequently, I have found everything else is an effort and up ward struggle, with stress, depression and illnesses in tow for the pity party. I am still learning about this process and will never stop, as every time I go through the forgiving process, I learn something new about myself. I have to forgive daily, I have to assess my thoughts daily and I have to choose my words wisely. This is all apart of my growth and this approach may not work for another individual, however I feel that it has benefited me in numerous ways. At times I do not feel like forgiving, but with consistent praying, meditating and reading, I see the bigger picture and manage to get through.
I would rather have peace of mind than allow bitterness to control me.
