~ Forgiveness of others is the path
that actually opens our hearts
to our own self-love.
You will not be able to love yourself
without forgiving yourself
and others, first.
Being unwilling to forgive, is a terrible
thing to do to ourselves.
Bitterness of the heart is like swallowing
a teaspoon of poison every day,
it accumulates and harms us
in many crippling ways.
It is impossible to be healthy and free
when we keep ourselves bound to
these past judgements that we have made.
The incident is over, perhaps long over,
it is time to let it go.
Leave your role as supreme judge,
and realize that many negative things
because of difficult reasons,
reasons we may never become
fully aware of.
Decide instead to live from
a compassionate core.
Compassion for all the different types
of hardships that people face,
that lead them into making decisions,
that are not always the best ones.
Always be ready to seek a spirit
and allow yourself to be free ~
