"👍 Let me meditate on this and of course you can share. Thank you for the work you do. 💖🙏💖
There have been a few times in my life I have struggled with sorrow or depression. A couple of times, the situation was beyond my control, a couple of times it was because of a bad judgment call on my part and I had to bear the consequences. I guess I would say that the word forgiveness was critical for both types of experiences. I had to forgive the people that had turned my life upside down, and I had to forgive myself for making a mistake.
I guess I always thought I would grow to an age where I would stop making mistakes, but the more I study developmental psychology, the more I understand that we are wired to make mistakes and we have to learn to take them in stride. Self forgiveness was harder for me than forgiving others, but slowing down my reaction time, taking a breath and trying to find the love spot within me that would react rather than the fear spot within me, really helped me to overcome any sorrow and depression. It’s not like I don’t still bump into those two emotions, but they no longer have me in their grip like before and I can heal in a timely manner.
I started a gratitude journal and that really helped me not only overcome negative thinking patterns inherent in the human mind, but stay open and optimistic at the same time. No more walls to protect me! I have faith and confidence in my capacity for falling on my face and jumping back up. 💖🙏💖"
