Breaking the Shackles
My days have been very bumpy. It took me while to learn what I am about to share here on the internet and I hope this piece finds you when you are in desperate need of help, assistance or are searching for answers.
How can we bring a better world around of forgiveness and love, if we cannot even forgive ourselves or keep holding grudges to those who have wronged us? If God himself forgave us long back, who are we to hold onto guilt and hurts? But then, is forgiving enough? Shouldn’t we even break off the ‘invisible wall’ that we build in the process. The walls may stop people to enter ‘your zone’ but it also restricts you to move out of ‘your zone’. Tell me, how will you experience the shift, the change, the magic and the miracle if you do not let yourself move out of your zone?
Every being is made up of Love. There is no point holding on to grudges. Tell me, will you be fine to go to that very person’s funeral who wronged you along with those grudges in your heart? You could lie to me, but not to your inner self. There is always some good in bad and some bad in good. Accept it and choose to react with Love. The purest and the greatest feeling. You never know what good you might be missing by carrying the weight of being deceived inside you. Break that wall and see yourself exploding with a white light of love to all beings around you and inside you. Take a moment and feel the light when you consciously let the wall break and shine with Love.
Don’t let someone else’s mistake be the reason you abandon the one who are genuine. Don’t let your guilt/regret be the reason for you not taking new chances. Don’t let the person who wronged you be the reason that ‘your wall’ stops the right one out which in turn could be wrong on your part. Don’t make the wall tradition stay. Throw your heart above the bar and watch your body flow. Stop blocking people from entering your life. Of course, toxic people need to stay away for the sake of your mental health but don’t turn bitter and toxic while dealing with them. There is a difference in building a wall and being careful. Be careful but don’t be carried away.
Chance is just a small term to ask for. And love, Love is a real huge term, rather a feeling which we say it out casually. Feel that huge thing with a heart of a child in you and don’t let the adult in you block it. Breaking the shackles is not only for them to step in but you to move out. If you don’t want to welcome back someone than have the courage to forgive and live you life in piece. Forgive because they were naive and you are strong enough yo let go. When you forgive, you lift the weight off your chest which you put o yourself in the first place. You don’t deserve to live with that heavy wait, do you?
Just let it go and the rest will follow. Trust me!
It is easy if you are willing enough to try..
