A gift you give yourself
So many people suffer from living from this place: The past created my present.
You’re holding onto something from your past that is keeping you from living the life you want now, from being the person you want now, from having the relationships that you want now.
Maybe it’s the repeated failure to achieve your goals. Perhaps it’s a vision you have of “who you are.” Your own identity, trapping you from becoming who you want to be.
Forgive yourself for this. Forgive your past, the people in it, your beliefs. Everyone is always doing the best they can. Including you. Your limiting beliefs once served a valuable purpose. Forgive them. Once you do, you’re free from them.
Writing a letter of forgiveness is an incredible practice to help you release negative emotions you may have been carrying for years. Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. It does not mean you approve or agree with what happened in the past.
Try this: Write a letter to someone that you need to forgive. Perhaps that person is you. Be thoughtful in this.
Once you’ve written your Forgiveness Letter, read it, feel it for the last time, and then let it go. You can shred it or burn it to help you let go and move on. Allow the ashes to blow away, leaving nothing left but spacious love.
Live from this place instead: The present creates my past.
