Depending on the situation, sometimes forgiveness is hard to do. Sometimes it is hard to let go and even when you do feel or believe that you have let go…. if forgiveness has not taken place – is it possible to say that you have truly let go and ultimately healed.
Forgiveness is especially difficult when you have not been given the opportunity to speak your truth regardless of this; can one truly heal if forgiveness does not take place?
Forgiveness does not only include forgiving the one who offended but forgiveness includes forgiving oneself.
Without forgiveness you will only continue to be hurt and suffer internally. Over time the pain could eventually fade but the aid of forgiveness will help the healing process speed up.
Self – reflection and introspection will also aid healing and encourage growth. We all go through tower moments throughout life but what did we learn – hopefully something that will be beneficial for the present and towards our future.
Each journey teaches a lesson and even though it hurts; overtime the pain will gradually fade and things will get easier.
Travel; spending time with your soul tribe; spending time in nature; praying or mediating; exercise ( in particular anything that can get the heart racing); sleep; or even doing something that will make you happy – like a hobby or passion – will also help the journey.
I promise it will get better as long as you forgive yourself (first and foremost) and forgive the person or thing who caused or triggered the pain or hurt.
