In order to heal oneself, we must learn how to forgive.
Don’t be alone when the mind is hurting. It’s brutally lonely and a hurt mind buried in pain, goes way deep in depression. Can be so difficult too climb out of that. Don’t be alone with your pain, surround yourself with people who care. Distractions can be a life support. So if you know someone even, it’s time for a visit. ~ Cyn Smith
One of the greatest struggles of the healing process is to forgive both yourself and others and to stop expending valuable energy on the past hurts.
We grow primarily through our challenges, especially those life-changing moments when we begin to recognize aspects of our nature that make us different from the family and culture in which we have been raised.
Always go with the choice that scares you the most because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.
If anyone tries to complicate your life, turn and walk away from them.
The mind can make a person’s life miserable at times and even being alone with one’s thoughts can just about drive you over the line.
When we harbor negative emotions toward others or toward ourselves, or when we intentionally create pain for others, we poison our own physical and spiritual systems. By far the strongest poison to the human spirit is the inability to forgive oneself or another person. It disables a person’s emotional resources. The challenge is to refine our capacity to love others as well as ourselves and to develop the power of forgiveness.
