When we look back on our life, we have to appreciate all of the mistakes and pitfalls as a whole…even if they make us cringe.
All of the moments in your life have contributed to the wisdom you have today.
Forgive yourself for your past. You would not be you without it.
And what about forgiving others? I strongly believe in forgiveness for YOUR sake.
Forgiveness is not about condoning the unforgivable, but rather about embracing the freedom that comes when you stop wishing for a different past.
Acceptance of your past is what frees you from the corrosion of anger and resentment.
No…I don’t mean you should ignite the flame of past relationships.
No…don’t invite people back into your life who have broken your trust again and again.
There is no need for drama in your life. It’s essential to expunge dysfunction from your life, and as you do, release yourself from the expectations you had on what your life should have been.
Acceptance brings peace.
