Lugging emotional pain around gets mighty tiresome! Sure, it’s comforting to hang on to the pain because then I can blame someone else for how badly I’m feeling.
Unfortunately, my pain is not hurting anyone but myself.
Refusing to let go of the pain means that I have been refusing to forgive. I am tired of carrying around the pain, so today is the day.
I now make the decision to forgive. I am willing to let go of the grievance, resentment, and unforgiveness that I have felt toward those who have caused me pain. I am willing to accept them as they are, not as how I wished they might have been.
I am completely ready to stop looking at myself as a victim. I am ready to forgive because that is an appropriate expression of love. I am ready to accept that all that has happened to me has helped me to be the person I am today, to find recovery, healing, forgiveness, and love. I am ready to accept that the harmful experiences I have gone through have actually enriched my life. I am ready and willing to look at those who have caused me pain as my teachers rather than my enemies. I am ready and willing to accept the humanity of those who have harmed me, and in return offer them respect for the divinity within them.
Today is my day of freedom!
