Forgiving the seemingly unforgivable

Forgiveness is a trickier thing than most people think. You can say a thousand times “I want to forgive you!” but it won’t stick. 

The inability to forgive or plain THE RESENTMENT is what is keeping you stuck. By resenting and blaming other people for our misfortune we unconsciously give our power away and that’s what makes it feel so heavy. ⠀

So here’s how I learned to forgive in a nutshell: What works most effectively is, to mentally go back to the point when you started resenting them. What was that situation like OBJECTIVELY? What could you have done differently to turn this situation around? What could you have done differently to reclaim your power? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There's a Hawaiian prayer to forgive that goes as follows, “I LOVE YOU. I‘M SORRY. FORGIVE ME. THANK YOU.” *

*No this is not a typo! This is especially for people who have issues forgiving others. If this is triggering you and you wonder why you have to ask your offender for forgiveness instead of the other way round, I would just kindly forward you to a model called “the law of attraction“.
