Old grudges



Loving myself means....
 
I forgive everyone.
 
Holding onto a grudge is harmful to me...
 
it closes off my heart...
 
keeps me stuck in judgement...
 
robs me of the freedom...
 
to be truly happy....
 
and at peace with others.
 
If I have a hard time forgiving...

it may not be about the other person...

but more about my ability to forgive myself.

I will remember...
 
 that everyone is doing their best...
 
no one is perfect...
 
especially me.

He who is devoid of the power to forgive
is devoid of the power to love.

~ Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

*****

The practice of forgiveness is our most important
contribution to the healing of the world.

~ Marianne Williamson ~
