FORGIVE DOES NOT MEAN TO FORGET

FORGIVE DOES NOT MEAN TO FORGET

To forgive does not necessarily mean to forget. To forgive does not mean that all can go back to the way things were before the negative event. Forgiveness is a means of letting go.

For me, I have carried a lot of emotional weight for many years. I judged myself. I couldn’t accept myself for the person I was when I was younger. I was embarrassed of the stupid, reckless mistakes that I have made. I allowed myself to hang on the experiences I’ve had with those whom have horribly wronged me. I clung to all of these negative things, until they became a safety blanket, this was an unhealthy safety blanket that caused me to continue to make similar mistakes and not let go of the past.

Some months ago during a yoga session at home, I stumbled upon a breakthrough. I was holding a long stretch, taking many deep breathes, and feeling deeply relaxed. From somewhere in my heart and mind, three words escaped my mouth that sounded before I realized that I was speaking… “I forgive myself,” I exclaimed.

  1. I Forgive. Myself. That moment I began to let go. I let go of my embarrassment, my mistakes, and I began to release my hurting. I’ve made it a practice to say out loud, “I forgive myself,” every time I have a thought from my security blanket. I truly feel that this practice has lifted YEARS of burden off of my shoulders and has brightened my everyday. It has created positive energy that I can feel! Saying the mantra out loud so that I can hear the words makes the statement as real as seeing them. It makes it true.

When you’re ready, I challenge you… speak this phrase to yourself and see what it can heal and how good it feels.
