Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

Heard the familiar phrase, your word is your bond. We recognize people need dependability in order to trust. We need consistency, security, in order to release our fears and doubts to enable us to trust. Occasional slip ups are ok that are beyond your control, but too many of them and it begins to look suspect.

But when you are dealing with issues that seem to continue to pile up over time, you have to examine self and the situation to get to the root of the problem. I realized today if you say you forgive someone, you don’t continue to bring up the same situation over and over. You discuss, clear the air and once the situation is done, you must make a choice to move forward and leave the hurt, the incident and all the junk that came with it behind. Otherwise, you truly didn’t forgive, then bitterness and resentment begins to rear its ugly head.

Mark Myhre explained in intricate detail the importance of forgiveness.  When you forgive you are able to kick off your shoes and dance in the rain. So let it Go!

    Nice insight. I heard a very interesting quote recently that I passed on to someone very close to me recently, and that was, “Don’t let someone who has hurt you live rent free in your mind.” When you forgive you need to really let it go as you say or it becomes destructive to you.

    Take care Alan
