“Forgiving is not condoning, it is just letting go and getting on with your life.” Louise Hay
Forgiveness is releasing yourself or another from the sentence of judgement and moving on as though the event never even occurred. Remember, what you hold captive holds you captive as well.
Thank you for a great video. I am happy to release some resentment found in my system today. Thanks!
Resentment is fear of pain.
I try to listen to my resentment. What is it trying to tell me? Lately, I have felt some resentment for a lady who unjustly blames me for her unhappiness. I know I’m innocent, so why do I resent her accusations? After reflection, I realized that her desire to make me responsible for her happiness mirrored my mother’s desire to use me to give her life meaning. Once I had this point of view, I could see that she was jealous of my free time (she has 3 children). She is actually feeling regret for over extending herself, but feels guilty for feeling that way about her kids, so I was a convenient place to put those feelings. Once I saw her pain, I felt compassion for her struggles and my resentment faded.
I have had a recent dealing with resentment. It for me manifested itself in hate for a particular person. I hated this person the majority of my life and found it to be my security blanket. I recently, through the Forgiveness Challenge, forgave the person I have hated for so long. It was the oddest thing…I felt shame underlying relief. Thanks for the video.. Good Tips.
