I Choose to Forgive
In order to forgive we need to stop identifying ourselves with the suffering that was caused to us – Madisyn Taylor
Forgiveness is not a free pass given to someone for pain they caused and allowing them to hurt you over and over. Forgiveness is acknowledging an offense and then releasing the hurt, not allowing it to make you closed off or bitter. It is understanding that hurt people hurt other people, and to keep a tally of all the hurts others have caused to you only poisons you. Forgiveness releases you from being forever tied to emotions and memories that don’t serve you. When you don’t forgive, you remain trapped in that offense forever replaying it. This is a waste of time and energy and it only hurts you. Forgiveness is something you offer to free yourself, and it is the beginning towards healing.
I am a lover of all things creative and beautiful. I enjoy nature, art, and things of the heart. I primarily express this love through writing, photography, and watercolor. I want to share my love of these things with all who are willing and wanting to receive them.
