But I wonder sometimes..how many people have we also hurt along the way? I know that none of us are perfect and we can't always do the right thing all the time so I'm sure there are many along the way that we have hurt as well, whether the intention of hurting them wasn't in our mind..in fact it may have been because we were angry or having such a bad day that we didn't pay attention to our words or our actions and in result we ended up hurting someone unintentionally along the way! When you think about it that way..it seems easier to forgive and forget! I know that for some reason we don't want to forget because we want to hold on to the pain and by holding on to the pain we somehow think that we won't have to let go of that person..it sounds crazy, I know..but in some way and for no known reason we feel as though we can keep both but we cannot, we simply can't hold on to that person no more than we can hold on to the pain! We have to make a choice in our lives, that choice is to either let go and move on to happy times again or not to forgive them and constantly replay what they did to you in your mind and in result you'll become bitter and unhappy! I want you to think about that today so perhaps you will allow yourself to move on and be happy again in your life! I promise you that after you do so you'll feel much lighter in your heart and the pain will fade as the time goes by!
It feels good to move on and forgive someone, though it's nearly impossible to forget what they've done..you can start over and learn the lesson of forgiveness and in result you'll also become a better person along the way!
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
It's worth it to move on with your life, take the action of forgiveness and choose love..not hate for the person that hurt you..you don't have to be their best friend and you don't have to be around them constantly..in fact if it helps you to forgive them more easily perhaps you should move away so you won't keep replaying what they did to you in your mind and you can finally move on with your life!
Do whatever it takes to forgive someone..because you deserve to be happy in your life and you deserve to be free..don't allow un-forgiveness to ruin your chance of a happy life..
I know it may be strange for me to quote Doc Holiday from the movie Tombstone but this saying has a good point here..
"there's no normal life, Wyatt..there's just life, you gotta get on with it.."
You just gotta get on with your life..move on and get on with your life!
