Masks Off: The Battle with Forgiveness

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” -Christopher Reeve

Have you ever dreamed of totally being free of guilt, shame, hurt, pain, abandonment, resentment, anger, bitterness, etc.? Life has taught me that two of the hardest things people struggle to say is I am sorry, and I forgive you. Often, it is said as merely words without true meaning. Forgiveness is an action word that must come from the heart. As an action of a noun, one must display the act of forgiving or be in the state of being forgiven or show willingness to forgive. Forgiveness is not performing the action but is instead being acted upon.

The act of forgiveness is for your own growth. Many times, we give consent to others to control our lives without being aware that we have given someone else this power. In return we are stuck in bondage while the other person is free to continue their lives with no regrets. We must release the holds which are preventing us to move forward in a life of joy and peace. Today I challenge you to take an inventory of your heart and forgive yourself, other people, life, and situations. Declare that you deserve this freedom. Look at forgiveness as a gain and not a lost. You will have officially won the battle and the war.

If you chose to continue your journey without forgiving, you are opening yourself to disturbing thoughts and emotions which drains your mental, spiritual, physical and emotional being. Ask yourself, “Is this obstacle worth my misery?” The correct answer is no. Everyone deserves a life of freeness. Do you rather be entangled in defeat or gloating in abundance? As always, the chose is yours. The dreams at first seem impossible because you dwell in emptiness, but then you take the first step of forgiving yourself and then they seem improbable, and then, when you surrender the will of forgiveness, everything soon become inevitable.
