Forgiveness is the healing balm to our emotional wounds.
When an avalanche breaks it would be a futile endeavor to find out which snowflake pushed which snowflake down the mountain. All have pushed and all have been pushed, many many times, and that first snowflake was holding on to the mountain with the weight of all the others on his back.
It is a futile endeavor to find out who has hurt who in the avalanche we call life. All have hurt and all have hurt others many many times. Accept that you are both “criminal” and “victim”.
So if your’re a “victim”, don’t take the avalanche of the human condition personally. It’s not about you. If you’re a “criminal” don’t blame yourself for too long for letting go of the mountain, it was only a matter of time.
One hurt at a time:
See. Accept. Forgive. Let go.
The avalanche had to break, but it need not last forever. Be brave!
