It’s so hard to forgive because we think that once we forgive, we’re making ourselves vulnerable to getting hurt again.
It’s not uncommon to be walking around and engaging in everyday life with various unresolved feelings lying dormant. We have experiences that affect us in different ways and when left unaddressed, they set up tent and make a nice little home in our subconscious; just waiting for a chance – a similar situation or a quiet moment – to remind us of their existence.
If you believe yourself unfortunate
because you have loved and lost,
perish the thought.
One who has truly loved can never lose entirely.
Love is whimsical & temperamental.
Its nature is ephemeral & transitory
It comes when it pleases and goes away
Accept and enjoy it while it remains,
but spend no time worrying about its
Worry will never bring it back.
– Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich

We’ve all come face to face with grief at one point or another in our lives. Whether we grieved over the end of a relationship, the loss of a friend or family member, the loss of anything of importance to us, a disappointment, or a failure.
