There is this beautiful, amazing, life changing secret to a happy life that so few people are tapping into.
Not only is it available to all, and absolutely guaranteed to bring you peace, deep relief and has been shown to completely reinvigorate the physical and mental health of those who use it regularly.
So what is this absolute miracle life hack?
It may sound like a complete mislead, or like some hooky catchphrase blasted on a poster in the office of a high school guidance counselor….but sit back and think for a moment how much of your discontentment is wrapped around the things you “can’t” forgive.
Your upbringing, and the way your parents didn’t seem to love you the way you longed to be loved.
The ex-boyfriend who didn’t value you. Your wife that doesn’t pay attention to her spending, nor seem to appreciate how hard you work. Your kids, because even though you love them fully and wholly, they are so damn obnoxious most of the time.
Yourself, for getting stuck in this job- or for being ten pounds overweight- and knowing you are too damn tired to do anything about it. That Boss that gets off on talking down to you. The politicians that make millions by draining you of every cent that they can.
We may not think of these things as resentments or true anger, more fleeting thoughts that come and go in everyone’s head from time to time. Yet, imagine your life without being plagued by these reoccurring annoyances. What would it be like to have the tools to address these things as they come up- but be able to breathe and move through them?
On a deeper level, there are major life traumas we are holding close to us, and never allow ourselves to process in a healthy and in-depth manner. That abusive lover. That friendship that meant so much, but ended abruptly and without any real closure. The health diagnosis that changed the way we live and breathe. We tell ourselves the “adult” thing to do is to suck it up, and move it along.
Forgiveness is the fist unclenched, the mind at rest and the heart at peace.
Forgiving events and people from our past does not mean that we find ourselves rekindling relationships that have proven to be toxic. Forgiveness leads us to acceptance- and that can be the very reason we never address our own inner turmoil. We think that if we finally “accept” something, it means that we are in agreement with our own mistreatment. In reality forgiveness is the key that unlocks us from the handcuffs of the misery of the past- and allows us to adventure into today.
