Welcome to day 8 of the turn your life around in 30 days challenge. Today we are going to do something that will help lighten the load of our mental landscape and make moving forward much easier and better.
We are going to mend all broken or idle and scared relationships and begin the process of healing those relationships. In other words… we are going to forgive and allow ourselves to be forgiven. This is not the easiest task in the world. Some of us have people we have wronged, and we have people who have wronged us.
We have people who have “hurt us to the core” and it may be difficult to really forgive them. This actually will hold us back from enjoying more of the success that lies ahead of us. We must full heartedly forgive all people, no matter the wrong they have done to us.
This does not mean you and that person are all of the sudden best of friends… instead it simply means you have let go of the pain they caused you… you have let go of the resentment you had for them… you have forgiven yourself and them.
Perhaps you have a relationship that is sitting idle – you can go engage in it to be sure they don’t have the idea you have abandoned them. The apologies and forgiveness is to go towards all people…
It does not matter… offer them the same apology you would anyone close to you and allow yourself to be forgiven. As long as you make the effort, it will be accepted. The key is to be sincere, and the only way to be sincere is to really come into the general understanding that no one would hurt you consciously know they were doing that. The reason is because in life… what you put out is what you get back. Therefore, no one would with clear understanding hurt you understanding that they are ultimately hurting themselves also.
So forgive and be forgiven and clean out that room of hate, vengeance, and evil in your heart and leave that room completely empty so it is not a burden to move forward.
A good tip to practice this is to do a fake Oprah show… go onto a show where you confront the person that hurt you and describe to them (imaginary them) how they hurt you and let them know you forgive them. This will help you do it with less emotion when you or if you ever get in front of them to do this.
Homework assignment: spiritually forgive… that is do it in your mind. NEXT do it physically by reaching out to those who hurt you and also reaching out to those you hurt and ask to be forgiven.
Tomorrow we’re going to dig a little deeper… in one of the greatest subjects of our physical lives!
