Forgiveness

 

Very recently, I read an article where a famous celebrity was nominated for an achievement award, which I personally didn’t think was deserving of her due to past political views she expressed.

As I related these views to my husband, he lovingly pointed out that was not how I professed to live my life.

There were strong, negative feelings surfacing toward this person and I soon recognized  I was reacting.

For some time now, I have realized that reaction does not support my life.  Also, I was holding her to something that had happened years ago.  At once, I knew there were traits I had outgrown and definitely wouldn’t want someone to think of me in that light.

With the forgiveness I experienced in forgiving the thoughts I had of her, I was freeing myself of old self-condemning thoughts of myself
