This week I've been working with forgiveness. Forgiveness is another form of letting go.
There are several people and events from my past that I need to forgive, but I just can't seem to get there. Some of the people have passed away, but I STILL need to forgive them. You see, by holding on to anger, hurt, betrayal or whatever other feelings you're feeling toward a person, people or event, you're not hurting them, you're only hurting yourself. When you hold these feelings inside, you can make yourself physically sick. These pent up emotions can cause ulcers, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, depression, and even cancer. I know this is something I have to do, but this darn being human thing keeps getting in the way. Some lessons are more difficult than others. This is a hard one for me personally.
We're all "works in progress"...no matter how young or old we are. I know with perseverance and help, we can learn to forgive and be set free.
