I forgive you, I forgive me
I've been thinking and researching a lot about the action of forgiveness.
What is true forgiveness? How can I forgive and be free?
Holding on to resentment, anger, sadness, ....etc is a heavy weight to carry.
Started reading about it, and listening to talks about it.
No one really tells us how to truly forgive.
Then I stumbled upon a video where the speaker said, "it's not about the how, first figure out the why"
Why do you want to forgive? And why haven't you been able to forgive?
Because sometimes we say we want to forgive but somewhere deep down in our subconscious mind, there might be a part of us that has attached itself to the role of victim and pain, and isn't ready to let go.
Or there is apart of us that isn't able to forgive that reflection in ourselves, so we can't forgive others.
When I sat with myself, and thought about the people I'm indifferent with, and listed down my reasons to why I want to forgive and why I haven't forgiven, and it made all the difference.
So I wrote this open letter for forgiveness, which truly soothed my heart and humbled me.
I forgive you for talking behind my back.
I forgive you for choosing to be unconsciously hurtful.
I forgive you for neglecting me.
I forgive you for lying to me.
I forgive you for excluding me.
I forgive you for judging me.
I forgive you for making assumptions about me.
I forgive you because I forgive me.
I forgive me for talking behind your back.
I forgive me for choosing to be unconsciously hurtful.
I forgive me for neglecting you.
I forgive me for lying to you.
I forgive me for excluding you.
I forgive me for judging you.
I forgive me for making assumptions about you.
I release you.
I release me.
Let there be light between us and light keeping us apart.
May there be peace in my heart and in my mind.
May there be peace in your heart and in your mind.
