Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. ~Mark Twain
I love Mark Twain. He is one person that I would love to meet if I could go back in time.
How true is this quote?? It speaks volumes to me. I know that forgiveness is a huge step to my healing process and believe me, it is something I am working on. The past is done, no going back, and I do not want this mental baggage that keeps me below the surface of the water I feel like I drown in at times.
But how do you go about forgiving yourself? I know it is a part of letting go, and I know that in doing so, I will feel more at peace.
Some things feel too difficult to forgive. I know that I will never forget, but the pain will lessen with forgiveness.
How do I leap this hurdle? How do I look in the mirror and forgive myself of my past transgressions? Forgive the despicable man who hurt my son.
I know that forgiveness must take place, and that I must learn to love myself in order to heal.
I would love suggestions on how to do so. How to leap over this monstrosity that seems to take over my mind… not at all times, but more frequently than I would like.
Blessings to you all on this beautiful day. ♥
