On Forgiveness

by Boon and Boys

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.
