It Is Time To Forgive

I don’t know about you, but I used to be an expert grudge-holder. Forgiveness? No way. Do you know how stressful it was? Very. I probably punished myself more, than the people who I was holding a grudge against. Along the way, I realized I needed to let go.

You see, forgiveness has little to do with the other person, but more to do with seeking peace within yourself.

Forgiveness does not have to mean reconciliation. It just means, “you will no longer take up space in my mind”.

During my reflections, the below words poured out of me.

Bubbling from the surface
Erupting like a volcano
They overtake your mind
Unwelcome thoughts
Decline

Memories
Happy
Sad
Upsetting
Angry
Vengeful
Regretting
Forgetting

It doesn’t work
The harder you try
The stronger they become
Little compartments
In your brain
Pathways
To the old
The bygones
The uncontrolled

Invisible faces
Haunting you
Reminding you
Who do you need to forgive?
