Forgiveness is as much or more for yourself as it is for the person you are forgiving.
-Julie T’s Life Lesson from Amana, Iowa
When you hold on to errors of your past, you systematically limit yourself. When someone does wrong to you and you hold on to their errors, you can limit your ability to fully move on. Recently, I have come to understand and see the need for me to fully forgive in my life.
I know, it is not easy. But it goes with the old adage not to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. And I promise myself I won’t. But when you do let go and truly forgive, you make yourself vulnerable again and that’s okay! Children understand this and live exciting and mistake-filled lives because they understand forgiveness and learning.
It is time we give ourselves permission to forgive and live. It is time to let it go.
