Pretty simple, right? It’s simple to say, but difficult (in your mind) to do. Someone hurt you. Hurt your feelings. Or maybe you hurt someone, unintentionally. I totally believe in Karma. What you do comes back to you, ten fold.
If you hurt someone, I’m going to stay with the unintentional revenue, You need to ask for forgiveness. You’ll need to explain yourself, what you were thinking and feeling at this time. The big part of this is not if the person forgives you. You HAVE to feel remorse. You actually have to be sorry of the pain you had caused.
Now, forgiveness. Holding onto negative experiences and the pain caused by other people can weigh you down. Being the bigger person and forgiving another, even if they have not apologized for whatever wrong they have done to you, is a freeing experience. You don’t have to allow this person back into your life. (if they are out) You don’t have to speak to this person. You don’t have to trust this person ever again. Just forgive and move on. NOTE: I didn’t say forget.
Don’t be a doorstep. Don’t allow someone who has hurt you again and again, do it yet again. Be strong. Protect yourself. Stand up for yourself. All you have to do is say, “No.”
You don’t have to explain yourself. You don’t have to list reasons. No means no. The end.
Be true to yourself.
