I've Learned...

I'VE LEARNED... - Author known to The Universe - I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others, sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself. I've learned that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you. I've learned that there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it. I've learned that when we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves. I've learned that love, like a river, will cut a new path whenever it meets an obstacle. I've learned that God gave us a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" I've learned that feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. I've learned that the more we count the blessings we have, the less we crave the luxuries we have not. I've learned that heros are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences. I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel. I've learned that you should never tell a child her dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what atragedy it would be if she believed it. I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do, but to the best you can do. I've learned that no matter how good a friend someone is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. I've learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides. I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become...I've learned that you can never tell the people you care about that you love them enough...so, I love you...loves :--)x

Forgiven is very important

Forgiven is very important to me. When I forgive myself, I let go and move on. I am no longer hating myself for what I did wrong. I realize that I am a human being and always prone to making mistakes. The same thing goes for others. This process allows me to heal and NOT to resent others.

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen

Forgiveness. I'm not there

Forgiveness. I'm not there yet. I'm struggling with that for me. And for everyone else.

I've done many Step 4s on resentments, angers, fears, etc. But I can't forgive yet.

Working on it.

Hi Patria, something that might help you on this, is too look at it in a different angle.

Forgiveness is not for that person or persons. It only for us. The ones who got hurt.

Lets say they don't deserve forgiveness. Ok. They might not.

But guess who does deserve t?

YOU.
