Living with Intent: Mending Relationships

This is going to be a tough one. One that you may not want to hear. But it has to be said: Forgive others as you would want them to forgive you. Did that cut like a knife? Probably.

But only if you know it’s true. I have had to mend lots of relationships over the years, some short lived and others lifelong relationships with people who will never go away even if I asked them to, i.e. my parents. Most of all, I’ve learned with time and serious intention, I’ve had to forgive people who never even offered me an apology. Now that shit stings! But my heart and conscious are clear. My goal is to be a good human and to one day incarnate into something even more beautiful than I am today. But in the meantime, I have to work through some shit and allow people who have wronged me to be punished, not by my resentment but by my love.
Healing from broken relationships is much harder said than done. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. It takes inner work first. You have to truly dig deep to find the necessary peace at knowing that you did your part of the equation. You can only control what you contribute, which in this case is a sincere forgiveness.
It’s time to do the inner work, my friend. Let go of the past that hurt you. Forgive the person you hate the most. Forgive the people you hate least. Either way, you’ve gotta let that shit go. It’s baggage and you don’t need it. Free yourself from the negative emotions you hold toward them. It’s time.

“You must forgive those who hurt you, even if whatever they did to you is unforgivable in your mind. You will forgive them not because they deserve to be forgiven, but because you don’t want to suffer and hurt yourself every time you remember what they did to you. It doesn’t matter what others did to you, you are going to forgive them because you don’t want to feel sick all the time. Forgiveness is for your own mental healing. You will forgive because you feel compassion for yourself. Forgiveness is an act of self-love.”
