I need to forgive someone….the harder I try…the worse the grudge gets. I even took time apart. Half the time we are together I am still feeling these slams like nothing is better. I have NO idea what to do. Do you cut the poisons out of your life completely? Or, do you understand that you will NEVER see eye to eye with everyone? 4 months ago

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and then discover that the prisoner was you.”
Pain shopping is something I am guilty of. If I never allow myself to stop feeling the pain, if I never let go and forgive, then it can never blindside me and catch me off guard ever again.
The only thing that has worked so far for stopping this from happening over and over.
Its a way to defend myself and protect myself from another trauma, but I hold myself prisoner. Eventually I have to figure out how to reconcile and forgive. 5 months ago
This applies to my overcome PTSD goal, too. Last year, I did it about T. and it worked almost seamlessly. It is the first thing I’ve ever actively done I think that has helped. Many approaches in therapy do not work for me, so this was fantastic, (although I’m sure therapy helped me subconsciously? I don’t know)
I will do this about my hometown I think. I really need to forgive it.
If you don’t know what I’m referring to, it’s this project right here. I invented it out of frustration, and it helped alleviate so much. 8 months ago
There were times in the past when I had failed to forgive those who had harmed me. This caused my suffering to linger. I eventually discovered that when I forgave those who harmed me, I liberated myself. Forgiveness is cleansing. Forgiveness creates new beginnings and new possibilities for good. It is also important to forgive oneself for one’s mistakes. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that no wrong took place. It means that the wrong doer is forgiven and is given a new chance to make better choices. 9 months ago
(a lot of coughing, a little aching, a lot of rolling back-&-forth trying to get to sleep. Not much to complain about.)
While sick, I figured I was well-enough to (at-least try) to explore it mentally etc.
Did some wrestling with demons, old & new.
