Your past no matter how twisted, sad, or scary doesn’t have to define you as a person for your lifetime.
For better or for worse, you’ve played a role in your past, we are all human and therefore we are all fallible. Present in quick, always trying to get away… And we push it even further, when our burdens from the past and fears for the future come to hunt us.
Forgiveness is never easy. Bitterness is easy, Hatred is easy. But forgiveness, that is a tough one. Sometimes people say things they don’t mean or do things they can’t take back.
Forgiving others is essential for spiritual growth. We know it’s easier said than done, but one of the keys to letting go of your past is learning the art of forgiveness. Forgive yourself first, Whatever you’ve done, you’re not perfect. Allow yourself the grace to grant forgiveness for your role in past emotional trauma.
I was afraid. What i have done is who i am, but what i have done is not who i will be. Since i realized what i have done is not who i can be. Unburden yourself from the mistakes of the past. And when you do, your heart grows stronger.
Your past is part of your life experience. No matter how painful your past may be, you can break the hold it has over you.
