Today I’ve been thinking about how letting go is an act of kindness. If you have been carrying around a grudge, it’s time to let it go and forgive them. I know. It’s harder to do than to say. I am discovering that I don’t need the negative energy in my life. Remember that forgiveness is not absolution; what happened in the past still happened. Forgiveness relieves you of the burden that weighs you down. Letting go helps you! You can heal, once you let go. Our society desperately needs lessons in forgiveness. That attitude of revenge is overwhelming. People have forgotten how to be nice.
