Forgiveness Matters

When I was in a place of chronic stress, going through my divorce, fighting for my children’s well-being, all on my own, with a baby and 5-year-old, I found it hard.

Hard to forgive the toxic people that had entered my life.

Until one day when I was looking at my child and thought “Wait! You didn’t ask for this life. I brought you into it and the environment I provide is not your choice. Oh, and, what you learn from it was all a reflection of me.”

As a momma, I realized we are all born into this world innocent, and that our childhood environment creates our future patterns. It was at this moment that I was able to look in the mirror and tell myself, “I did the best I knew”.

Yes I have made some bad choices, but the reason I did this was because I was codependent (thanks to alcoholism that attacked my mother).

I knew I needed to forgive myself if I was ever going to move forward in my own life.

Once I began working on forgiving myself, my life changed in so many ways. It was like a ton of bricks was lifted off my shoulders.

I could breather deeper, love clearly and emotionally detach from my ex-husband.

Friends, forgiveness is the key to a happier life.

Sending you strength to forgive yourself,
