“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”
— Steve Maraboli
We often find ourselves stuck in the past, unable to let go of old hurts and experiences that we perceive as situations where we have “been wronged.”
It doesn’t really matter whether it was a “real” or perceived hurt, the important thing to note is that when you hold on to an unwanted experience from the past, you are bringing it into your present – and that means you are reliving it over again, in every new moment you have.
Of course, it is hard to let go and forgive something that hurt you, but it’s much harder to keep on living it over and over again.
