You’ll never have the inner peace you’re seeking unless they forgive you for what you’ve done to them.
Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time, just like it does for you and me.
When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.
Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer grows you.
An oyster may not like that irritating grain of sand in its shell but it manages to transform the irritation into a beautiful and precious pearl. Be kind to everyone!
Listening is often the only thing needed to help someone.
