30 Days of Love - Day 15: Forgiveness

Day 15 is dedicated to forgiveness.

In my 45 years on Earth, the hardest lesson I have learned...the hardest person to forgive at times is...myself.  I have been through a lot in my time here on Earth.  I don't talk about 95% of what I have been through.  Part of forgiving myself is to open up to others (very slowly) and share my life journey with them.  And maybe someday, I will put my words to paper.

I have also learned that I need to forgive people in my life, especially for things that happened years ago..  I need to forgive those who are not sorry for their actions.  I need to forgive those who do the same actions over and over.  I need to forgive those that are no longer here and cannot be confronted.

For the most part I have forgiven all those I have in mind while writing this post.  Why have I forgiven them?  Because hard another lesson I have learned is that holding on to anger only hurts me, not them.
