“There is light and goodness in all of us.
Sometimes, ego and fear takes over and makes us act in ways that hurt others.
When you find yourself in a situation where another person has intentionally harmed you, do your best to not react. Sit with the emotion for a while. What’s the best response here? Think about it. How can you bring love into this situation?
Know that people never hurt another unless they are experiencing some serious pain inside.
Don’t cling to pain that was never intended for you; don’t make the pain yours.
Do your best to forgive—not just for the other person, but for you.
Forgiveness will set you free. Give love. Give all the love you’ve got—especially to the people that have done you harm.
They need it the absolute most.
This is a blessing and an opportunity to forgive.”
