A Thought To Ponder - Letting Go

Hanging onto resentment
is letting someone you despise
live rent free in your head

Wiser words have never been spoken. I often get asked why I have chosen to forgive those that have committed truly despicable acts agianst me and my children. It is because I choose to move on and live MY life...not the life that is overshadowed by hate and despair.

In forgiveness, there is freedom.

Good quote. I'm generally a forgive and forget type of person, however there are two people that I just can't bring myself to forgive. I can feel that resentment hanging around sometimes. But, geez, their betrayals still hurt, even five years later. I think I'm going to put this quote up on my whiteboard. Maybe it'll help convince me to just... let go. :)

Cheers!

I was just going to say that it must have been a woman who wrote this wise quote...so I scrolled back up and sure enough...good old Ann Landers!

I finally gave up the last two people in my head...I was tired of them rolling around like marbles in my head...

Great Quote Janie!


Blessings on the way to you and lots of hugs too!
