It’s when I’m feeling low, negative, bitter, or empty that I have learned to stop and assess. To simply acknowledge the existence of those emotions in my mind.
I don’t yet have to go on the journey of “why” and “how to fix,” I simply have to welcome them back like the familiar, painful entities that they are.
Because they are there, and they are me, so I grant forgiveness to both.
I could go on to talk about where the negativity stems from: impossible self-standards, mistakes I’ve made in life, criticism for current coping strategies due to stress, etc.
Yet, what good would it do to dwell on those day in and day out? Yes, growth also comes out of knowledge but only when the Negativities no longer have your pain to feed off of.
So practice forgiveness, to yourself especially and to others. Begin again to invest in yourself the way you have so painstakingly invested into others, only to find your return come up empty.
Because when you are finally kind to your own self, the gains will flow with abundance. In every facet of life from your self-image to your career to your determination for personal success, even to healing from past emotional wounds, the change will begin almost immediately.
