In the end we only regret chances we didnt take.The relationships we were scared to have and the decisions we waited to long to make there comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesnt, who never did and who always will.
Loved much, lived gently, letting go gracefully...not so much. I won't apologize for telling it like it is to someone holding hands with the devil and living in denial, nor apologize for doing whatever it took to repair what they broke and left in pieces. God picked up those pieces...He's the one who cared. To Him I owe everything; to the devil, I owe nothing.
Or the people I share my life with! You may think you know it all, the whole story, but 90% of the time you're just flapping your gums about something you know NOTHING about! You won't like what I have to say about you! And the major difference... What I have to say is true!
You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. Share this with someone who needs it: http://www.daniellelaporte.com/the-positivity-of-pride/
Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the remedy. It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.
Letting go was one of the hardest things I've ever done. And letting go of the hurt was even harder. But when I was finally able to accomplish "the impossible", my life became full of so much more than what I had lost, when I lost him. I realized that I had lost him long before I was ever aware there was a problem. I forgave myself, too. And now, I'm happier than I've ever been, and full of hope for a brighter future.
