Forgiveness can come in all forms, big and small, and even to be something to be practiced on a daily basis. There are many times in life when we are mad at others and even ourselves; and this is often when we do not know how to handle a complex, stressful situation. Do you feel helpless and out of control sometimes? Read on for management tips.
Forgiveness allows you to take charge of your own life. It helps you heal the wounds of your past hurts and focus on what really matters in your life at the present and for the future. Dwelling in the past does nothing for you in the present and can even hinder you from creating new positive moments. Remember you can’t change anything that’s already been done no matter much thought you invest in it.
As you start your journey of forgiveness on a mindful note, you will be able to let in enlightenment, healing and abundance into your life.
How can you start forgiving yourself?
Step one, start being mindful about how often you actually find yourself to be feeling upset and angry. Only then can you decide that the best thing you can do for yourself is to focus on forgiveness. No matter how undeserving you may rationale forgiving to be, this is key to freedom from your own internal entrapment, so you can truly move on and re-direct your life to how you want it to be.
Forgiveness is a journey.
Step two, understand that forgiveness may take time. Recognize that it may not be an easy task and it may take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. Take baby steps if you need to but be aware that you will reach there eventually. You may start off with small and simple things such as calming your thoughts or doing something therapeutic to take your mind off the issue. Better still, engage in productive activities to help you deal with this in a constructive manner that rewards you.
At the end of the day, the only way out of the dark tunnel is to go through it. Give yourself the time you need. It is the process that will make you out to be the person you need to be. Life is that journey.
Commit to this journey.
Now, you want to understand where the source of your pain is coming from. Remove yourself from the situation of a victim, and instead come from a place of just trying to understand why things came to how it become to be.
Make the switch from victim mentality to coming from a place of compassion and understanding. You will start to notice, that acts of wrongs are often committed by someone who is suffering too. Being mindful about this allows you to eliminate all negative emotions that is hindering you from the mental switch to forgiveness.
With focus comes results.
Lastly, brainstorm ways to dealing with the source of what is causing your pain. What would make you feel better? Focus on the routines towards feeling better instead of the pain at hand. Forgiveness is as easy as focusing on how much you want to let go on what has already been done, and look onward that light at the end of that dark tunnel to meeting a more positive and happier you.
Remember that, being mindful on this journey of forgiveness, will bless you with an immerse and deep sense of gratitude. Freeing yourself from past hurts, is to free yourself from being held captive by the sufferings of your own mind, and redirect focus towards living out your life the way you would much prefer it to be.
