“The truth is, forgiveness isn’t about the other person. It’s always about us. It’s about allowing ourselves to heal, to move on and to let the experience change us in a positive way. There will always be love and light if we open that door. When we allow ourselves to finally forgive, let go and make peace with a situation that cannot be changed, we give ourselves the freedom to love others and love life again.”

A little parcel from my Beliefnet post on the F-Word That Will Change Your Life. This was a piece I pulled together after being tired of my own whining about life. It’s all about finding yourself in a place of stagnation and realizing that what’s holding you back is an inability to forgive yourself or someone else. As Christina Baldwin says:

“Forgiveness is the act of admitting we are like other people.”
