In life there will always be times when we need to walk away. There will be times when we need to let go and forgive. And there will be times when we would like to be forgiven. Forgiving is a process. It happens naturally with the help of time, insight, understanding and healing. Forgiveness cannot be rushed and occurs in it's own time. Give yourself and others time to forgive. Give time to understand the reasons for things that have happened. Give time to heal. Be kind to yourself and others. Remember that you are human and others are human too.
When we talk things over with someone we feel better. Relax and practice forgiveness whenever you can. If this feels difficult to do, try to forgive and let go for small things. In time you will feel better about forgiving. Learning to forgive is important for well-being. You deserve peace. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Forgiveness is a release and it will help you to feel lighter. Forgiveness is letting go of negativity. Forgiveness is not forgetting. It is about moving towards what gives you peace. Forgiveness is a lot of things. It is making a promise that you will take better care of yourself and keeping that promise.
Positive thinking makes forgiving easy and possible. Have good will toward others. Be at peace with others. Wish them well from a distance if you need to. Release any need to control. Let others be who they are. Release others to what is peace and happiness to them. This improves health and well-being. There are many people that make you smile. There are many people that love you, and that you love. And there are people that you need to let go of in order to have peace. This is a natural part of life. Donít allow the negativity of one person or situation to take your happiness. It is possible to have peace and good feelings.
Trust that all people in the world are not the same. All men are not the same, and all women are not the same. Thankfully everyone has a different personality and intention. If someone is kind or unkind to you, realize it is because of what is going on inside of him or her. Understand itís not about you. Breathe and let go. Focus on the positive people and things in your life. Move close to positive relationships and allow them to heal you. Focus on taking care of you and the ones you love. Let go of the rest.
