14. Your Past Is Your Past.
Original Facebook post January 11, 2015
Soulful Sunday: I started re-reading The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren to get the new year off to a good start. When I read the part about the power of forgiveness, it really hit home. Forgiving others who have deeply hurt me is something I've had to work on continually. But the freedom that comes from breaking the chains of resentment has been life-changing.
If you are reading this and are struggling with bitterness, I urge you begin the forgiving process. When your anger or hurt swells up inside you, you may want to repeat "Let it go. It doesn't matter anymore." Or you may want to adopt other methods people have used to leave their pain in the past so they could enjoy a peaceful, happy life again. But what ever you do, just know that forgiveness can set your mind, body and spirit free. And you won't have to suffer in a self-imposed prison of sadness and bitterness anymore.
