Forgiveness is powerful. It is empowering. It sets us free. And we are the only one who can do it. To forgive ourselves and others.

Without forgiveness we are stuck in the past. We are not present. We are not growing.

"Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom." Hannah Arendt
Without forgiveness we are not living.

You don't need the other person to be sorry to forgive them.
That may never happen.

They may or may not even know they hurt you.
You don't even need to tell them you forgive them.

"Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life.” George MacDonald

You are the only person who needs to know.
The person you free is yourself.

You are the person you harm if you don't forgive yourself & others.
"The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world. "Marianne Williamson

We are all human and we all make mistakes.
We are all doing the best we know how to do.
We all have people to forgive for hurting us.
We all need to forgive ourselves for hurting ourselves and others.

To live we need to grow.
We all have the choice to learn, change & grow.
We all have the choice to forgive.
Some choose not to change or grow.
Some choose not to forgive.
We need to accept that and love them for who they are & where they are.
They have been deeply hurt also.

But forgiveness doesn't mean sacrificing our own life, growth, health and well-being because others don't want to change.
We will always need to forgive ourselves & others.

"Life is an adventure in forgiveness. " Norman Cousins
Forgiveness is letting go of the past.
Fear is holding onto past hurts and pains.
Fear is not forgiving.
Fear blocks us.
Forgiveness is healing.
Forgiveness is living.
Forgiveness is growing.
Forgiveness is Loving.

"Forgiveness is the final form of love." Reinhold Niebuhr

See the gifts you received in your pain. These are your life lessons. They are part of your life purposes. Learn the lessons, forgive, and grow. Move on.

Help others who have similar pain and who want to change.
For example, in losing your partner, forgive yourself and any others you may feel contributed to the break up. If love is something you are passionate about, help others overcome their obstacles.

Choose Love. Choose Forgiveness. Choose to keep growing in your life.
I hope you enjoyed reading, your thoughts and views are welcome. Let’s talk about love
