The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Forgive & Forget…or Relive & Regret?
Quote of the Day:
“Nothing releases like forgive. Nothing renews like forget.” ~Ray Davis
The Single Woman Says:
Forgiveness doesn’t EXCUSE the fact that someone caused you pain…it RECUSES you from a life of chains. By refusing to forgive someone, you are willingly reliving what they did to you, over and over, day in and day out. While most people think unforgiveness is punishing the other person, it’s really punishing yourself. You’re essentially handcuffing yourself to someone who hurt you, choosing to stay attached to the hurt and the pain and the grief, rather than looking down and realizing that the key is in your hand.
Today: Unlock yourself. Realize that they can’t hurt you anymore. What happened, happened…and it was wrong, and unfair, and it caused you pain…but it’s even more wrong to stay trapped in a jail cell of bitterness, serving time for someone else’s crime. Exercise your right to forgive them…then exercise your right to forget them. Release the unforgiveness and hate. A life of joy and freedom awaits.
