Forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to live life in freedom. -Wiki
"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies." -Martin Luther King Jr.
To all the people I've ever hurt or effected in a negative way,
Words are only words and there are no words to truly express how sorry I am for putting you through whatever hardships I may have caused. With every fiber of my being please know that there was never an ounce of maliciousness running through my veins and although I may have caused you pain, it was not my intention to do so. I am a lover, a thinker, a passionate person, when it comes to matters of the heart I only want the best for each and every one of us.
Our time is limited on this planet, I wish to positively influence all who I meet during this journey, I wish to share wonderful stories when I'm old and gray about the beautiful spirits I have met across the way, the exciting times we shared. When I look back at all I have been through, the amount of positivity that I have encountered definitely outweighs the negative but it's through the negative where we learn our best lessons. Like I stated before words are words and it's only through actions and changed behavior that one will truly redeem themselves in the eye of the creator. The past few years I have taken a deep journey within to find something, what that is, I'm still not quite sure, but the deeper I go, the more I feel the connection amongst us all, the more I feel that connection the more and more I'd like to reassure you all that all my actions from this point on are solely for the purposes of making the world a better place.
For those of you who I've hurt, from the bottom of my heart, I hope we may find forgiveness in the situation and let go of the possibilities of what if, so that we may live freely in the now.
To those who have hurt me intentionally and unintentionally, there was a lesson in all of it and I thank you for the experiences we've shared. To all of you that have came across my path during my incarnation here on Earth I appreciate you deeply, I applaud your efforts and root for your peace & happiness as I am learning, all of it, peace, love, happiness, etc., all comes from within. So please, take care of yourselves.
Take care of each other.
