Without forgiveness life is governed by...an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.
- Roberto Assagioli
Within the last few years FORGIVENESS has been a big theme in my life. Often times I have not had the strength on my own to FORGIVE. In those times I found myself asking God for the STRENGTH to FORGIVE.
I have had a lot of people to do some awfully ugly things to me and I have spent a lot of energy trying to figure out what was wrong with me personally that humans could be so mean and evil.
I am my toughest critic and I would just beat myself up so bad because of what other people where doing. I realize now that people can be really cruel if given the opportunity so I found myself after much prayer realizing that I am not perfect but I do treat others the way I desire to be treated with dignity and respect. SO now I don't waste time trying to figure everything out I just understand that if I did'nt do anything at all to cause the problem then I simply "FORGIVE and Release" that individual or inviduals from my life and move on. It's not worth wasting precious energy on stuff that often is very petty and often times has absolutely nothing to do with U!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a Free Woman and I plan on staying that Way!!!!
