Faith Filled Friday

Forgive, let it go, move forward

You cannot avoid being hurt sometimes by the carelessness, ignorance, or malice of others. Yet you can very much avoid prolonging that hurt.

Yes, it’s bad that bad things happen, whether intentionally or otherwise. But continuing resentment over them does not ever make them better.

Sometimes this hurt will come from clients interaction, a broker, friends or even family.

What will make your life better is forgiveness. What will free you from the pain is to let it go.

It’s tempting to imagine that you’re winning some sort of moral victory by continuing to suffer. That is just silly thinking. The real victory, however, comes when you move completely beyond the whole affair.

Don’t incapacitate yourself with an awareness clouded by resentment and the desire for revenge. You deserve to go in the direction of better, more positive pursuits.

Choose a hopeful future over a difficult past. Forgive, let it go, move forward with renewed energy and positive purpose. 

The greatest power you have in your life is to make choices to love others even if you’ve been hurt.
