I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying that forgiveness isn’t for the other person, it’s for yourself. I know I’ve heard it for years, but for whatever reason it really hit me last night, how true that is. There have been several situations lately where I’ve felt like an apology was owed but wasn’t offered. I’ve held on to those insults, stewed over them to the point that it’s becoming a hatred and I’m not okay with that. I’m not okay with giving someone else that kind of power over my emotions. If you know me at all , you know that I like being in control of a situation, and by holding these grudges I was giving that control to someone else.
So…I’ve let go. I haven’t forgotten, but I have forgiven and I’m moving on. What’s up ahead looks much better than what’s behind anyway.
