“don’t worry, be happy!” . . .

by mulberryshoots

I noticed it’s hard to let go of hurt or frustration when relationships are wanting.

Someone said to me that he can only apply himself to what he has control over. I take it that excludes how others behave and what they might want that is different from what we hope for.

Speaking about the process of ‘forgiveness’, someone else said, “No matter what the offense is, the process of forgiveness is the same: You let go of anger and hurt by being mindful and focusing on gratitude and kindness. …Forgiveness concepts are simple,” he says. “It’s the execution that’s hard.”

Amen.
