Real forgiveness is our innate ability to feel safe and free to be who we truly are.
One of the most important components of life, is the ability to forgive ourselves and others - in order to be at peace within, we need to allow it to penetrate our core.
The inability to forgive is like inviting negative energy in, which does not allow us to live life fully - it affects every aspect of our lives.
We must realize that holding on to any negative energy created by our past thoughts, feelings, and experiences, is keeping us imprisoned in the "cells of our mind".
Negativity hinders our efforts to be successful in life - it must be acknowledged and released.
The idea of making peace within our soul is not just mind talk; It's bigger than that - it's a way of being ok with all the experiences, contradictions, and different expressions of one's life story.
Self-forgiveness is finally allowing yourself to remove the "big rock" sitting on your chest and breathing freely after holding your breath for too long.
Why do I need to let go?
Think about it: two wrongs don't make a right!
Forgiving is not about forgetting, it's about not letting a wrong hold you back!
In the end we don't have to answer for what others do to us - only for what we do to them.
