There is an old saying that forgiveness is like “longing for a better past.”
Sometimes we get “stuck in the story” and live from the “if only” point of view.
.We cannot change the past, but we can change the way that we view it – what did this experience teach you? Are you able to look at this past experience, whether it is something you did, or some other person did, in the light of growing from it?
Are you able to see that this experience actually gave you a gift of wisdom, insight, compassion and allowed you to move into a larger experience of life?
in doing so – you DON’T REWRITE THE PAST – YOU LIBERATE YOURSELF IN THE PRESENT – AND AUTHOR A NEW FUTURE.
