It is sometimes realized slowly…
Sometimes it just takes time…
Sometimes it is right in front of me
and I can’t see it…
Sometimes I just need
time and patience…

Sometimes I should release
the need to determine
“how things should be”

I read somewhere
that if you are suffering
in your life right now,
that those thoughts
are connected with
an attachment to thinking
how ‘things should be going”

A well of love resides within me.
I wish that was contagious…
What I need to remember,
what we all need to remember
in times of trouble or distress
is that we should forgive others…
as in…
I forgive everyone…
Including myself…

the most powerful
you can do
for others
for yourself

Self-forgiveness... not sure how that works.
I have regrets, but do not think that is the same.
Surely only others can give me forgiveness.
To forgive can be very difficult.. somethings I cannot forgive or forget... the wounds are deep.
I also find it difficult to turn the other cheek.

I suppose I must try harder...

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it."
Mark Twain
•The invitation to forgive reminds us that we hold the key.

•You don’t want to hold onto that hurt. It’s only hurting you more.

I prefer to think that we are probably doing the best we can, and due to circumstances beyond our control......
.....and I try to forgive them and myself - with that thought in mind

this kind of ties in with my thoughts of the need to determine
“how things should be” I would like to be smarter, prettier, wealthier, stronger, younger, etc....... But basically we all have things to learn and...... whether we like it or not......... so accept it, live with it, change it, It is our choice of how we react to what lessons come to us.....

"You Are Right Where You Are Supposed To Be"

ps You sound like a very thoughtful, kind and caring individual to me, and I am positive you should let it go, what ever it is...........
