Letting Go of Hurt

I have spent the past few weeks feeling hurt and have allowed bitterness and resentment permeate my soul because of a family member’s actions on Facebook.  I won’t post the details on here in case that family member happens to read it, but basically it boils down to my brother and I got snubbed in pictures and it’s just a continuation of being snubbed and treated like “The Others”.

It finally dawned on me that this person has no idea what they did and they are living their life the same way they always have and meanwhile here I am sitting in misery wondering what the heck I did to deserve this.  What kind of crap is that??

Letting go of resentment, bitterness, anger, hurt, etc., is very, very, VERY difficult.  But it’s very, very, VERY healthy.  It has nothing to do with the person who wronged you, but everything to do with you.  Forgiveness is like a gift to yourself saying, “It’s okay…you can let this burden go.”  And, in the end, it truly is a burden being let go.

So, with all of that being said, I’m going to try hard to let it all go.  If my family member is going to continue to live their life and continue to do the things they do, I can’t change that.  But I CAN change the way I react and take the hurts and snubs and etc.  So….here’s to letting go.

Prayers, Love, & Peace

I’m sharing this from my Facebook post because I truly believe a lot of people need to hear it and remember it.  It’s easy to focus on negativity and dwell on the bad stuff that is going on, but always remember that there are people out there praying for you and loving you — even people you haven’t even met before!

“There are a LOT of people that are in need of SERIOUS healing prayers right now. And because of this, there are a lot of people who need prayers for peace and comfort. Always remember life is so short and we never know what hand we’re going to be dealt, so share LOVE with those around you ALWAYS and let go of grudges and the inability to forgive. Please remember to pray for those in our lives that need it. Even if we don’t know details or know specific prayer needs, God DOES so hand it all over to Him. And, if you don’t believe, please send up positive and healing thoughts and energy. Every little bit helps!!”

So remember to say a prayer not just for yourself and your friends and loved ones, but for all the others out there that need it. God is all-knowing and in control and He knows exactly who needs what!  Give the power to Him!!
