Secret Of The Week

This week's Secret of the Week is something that is close to my heart.

If y'all remember, one of my Christmas wish list was to forgive and be forgiven.

I have done the former, hard as it was for me to do. And I have also come to the realization that the latter is not forthcoming.

But you know what I also realized? I found out that, in allowing myself to forgive, I don't need to be forgiven. I don't have to be forgiven to move on because I have allowed myself to forgive.

Feel me?

When you take the courage to forgive someone who has betrayed and hurt you, there is a feeling inside you that tells you you have been forgiven. I suppose I don't expect anyone of you to understand, especially those who are still holding grudges against someone.

But you know what? Take the first step in forgiving the people who have hurt you and you'd find this feeling of comfort that in allowing yourself to forgive, you have allowed yourself to be forgiven.

Try it.

Believe you me, it feels refreshing and rejuvenating.
