Selfless, Caring, Loving, Sensitive, Generous are beautiful character traits which many take for granted. Some people give all these qualities and more to those they care about, but get hurt over and over again.
Do they forgive?
YES!! Over and over again, they do. Not because they are stupid. Not because they are Doormats but because they are kinder than kind with beautiful hearts.
“Let’s be grateful for those who give us happiness;They are the charming gardeners who make our soul bloom”. ~ M Proust
Ofcourse, it’s easier said than done because the heart hurts. However, if we don’t let it go, this is what bitterness does to people:
a) Bitterness Ages people. They look at least 5 years older.
b) Bitterness attracts Negative Karma. In life we attract what we give out.
c) It makes tumours grow in the body. This can be terminal.
d) Bitterness robs the body of energy. It just saps!
What if there is bitterness towards a family member and one day they die? People start wishing they didn’t take it too far and wish they made peace with them – Too late!!…….then Pain and bitterness Round Two starts.
If this is you, let it go for your own peace and happiness.
Nobody on earth is perfect, even the most upright Christian, Muslim or Pope. However, I do know that everyone in life, also has a good quality or good qualities about them. We should love people for who they are and be patient with any negative thing about them.
Maybe with time, they will change.
Maybe with time, we can help them be better.
Maybe they crossed our path to make us grow/learn a lesson.
Don’t let anyone break your soul or cut you down with words. Never drop down to their level. Know deep down – you are better than that and destined to do great things. Find your joy in life and continue to live it.
c) Don’t absorb any negative said about you. Shrug it off. With time the truth will be known.
d) Think of ways to improve situations. E.g your job, your relationships, anywhere you find yourself.
e) Find time to meditate as the inner you needs that peaceful time. If there is peace/joy on the inside, it will reflect on the outside.
f) Have a humble spirit. Proud people are quick to fall in life and many want to see it, but the humble will go so far, so quickly, as they attract lots of positive energy. Even God resists the Proud and gives grace to the humble.
g) When people come to you, ensure they leave in a better / happier frame of mind.
Bloom where you are planted. Let your name only be known for Good.
