I want to forgive you….
…for being so fragile that you have lost parts of youself along the journey
…for being so strong that you have never learned to ask for help, you struggle to trust in others, to lean into the kindness offered
…for not always being brave enough to embrace your vulnerability
…for rushing in to fix everything for those you love as opposed to holding space and supporting them in finding their own resolution
…for striving to anticipate everything and working to counterbalance it
…for shutting yourself off from the world, not in the times of healing but out of fear
Remember my dear chicka you are only human. You have made mistakes and I can guarantee you will make more before your time on this precious planet is over for you are just a mere mortal. These mistakes are important, essential to your growth so learn from them. Strive to overcome those forgiven shortcomings; keep your heart filled with gratitude, kindness, and compassion; focus on the love not the fear; and maintain pure intentions for all will be alright when the sun sets. Remember to love yourself, always be as kind to yourself as you would to others.
If you were to write a letter to yourself, what would you forgive?
“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
