Our past feelings and events are juicy.
They draw a hard line in the sand of what we wish to be, and what we refuse to be.
They create these lists of things, people, places, feelings to avoid in life.
We take the shovel of our harmful experiences as soon as possible and say “yep, learned that, gonna bury that now”…
Who were you when you weren’t the liar, the gossip, the judge and the jury?
Who were you when you weren’t the harmed, the judged, and the exiled?
I will never tell a lie again, I will never be harmed again.
This lack of neutrality, this polarizing play — stops us from really seeing and forgiving.
Did you stop to forgive yourself, and THANK yourself, show gratitude for these people and these places that made us awakened to the experience?
Thank you for being the liar, thank you for being jealous, thank you for being the judged and the exiled.
Send love to yourself, celebrate yourself, and bring back all the pieces of you that were cast away when you decided to not let them go, but bury them deep. You’re worth your own love, gratitude, and forgiveness.
