“Can YOU forgive YOU?
Today, like every other day, I had felt the urge to call the X to say I’m sorry.
I never bother him of course. He’s accepted my apologies and extended his. The end.
So why do I get this annoying need to apologise, over and over again?
He is equally, if not even more, responsible for breaking us up.
Why should I say sorry again? Is it really his forgiveness I seek?
As I pondered this over, I brought my guilt before God for the millionth time in prayer, asking for forgiveness. In response, all I heard in my heart was a gentle answer in the form of an affirmation and a question:
“I’ve already forgiven you a long time ago… Can YOU forgive YOU?”
Wow… I was silenced… Good question…
And then it becomes so clear.
The reason why my inner voice has never stopped saying sorry, is because it begs to be heard, by me. It wants to be forgiven, by me.
Part of me knows I still blame me for the break up. That part of me wants to be released from that guilt and condemnation. It wants to be set free.
Who knew, at the end of the day, it all boils down to Me, Forgiving Me?
“Forgiveness if a GIFT… Can YOU forGIFT YOU?”
ps: I know I’ve shown this video before but it’s so awesome, here it is again! Watch the sheeeeer happiness of the Humpback whale after it’s been set free–that’s what Love & Forgiveness can do for you and I. 🙂
Love & Forgive,
“Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours.”- Swedish Proverb
