Lately I've been drawn to practice forgiveness. I have felt a desire to lift the weight of resentment and let go of hurt I've held onto that others may not even know they've caused. What I've realized is that when I am content with who I am I don't need the validation of others. If I don't need their validation for my worth, then they can't hurt me. I can let go of the negative feelings and view them from a place of compassion instead of anger. I no longer bear a grudge or feel wronged because I am free from the chains that non-forgiveness held on me.
