    When we hold on to resentment towards another person, we're the one holding it, not that other person...so not only does it dim our lights, but it creates heaviness, pain, anger, & an impact that only we feel. It's not fair to do that to ourselves when we could be enjoying some cool things & awesome feelings. Remember, forgiving someone for something they did doesn't mean you condone it, it just means you aren't willing to carry around toxic feelings that dim your beautiful light.

    If someone hurt you deeply to your soul, it’s tempting to want to shut down and shut off – to give in and give up – to get bitter, resentful, depressed – and all before breakfast! This soul-shutting-down tendency reminds me of those classic zombie horror movies. You know, those unconscious, soulless zombies walking around in darkness, taking bites out of innocent, happy, soulful people? One chomp, then, suddenly, these newly bitten folks find themselves becoming zombie-like themselves. They feel their souls shut down. They crave spending time in darkness. They want to bite others. Likewise, if you’ve suffered from an emotional zombie bite, it’s temping to want to join the zombie crowd and shut off your soul, seek dark thoughts, and chomp upon another. It’s especially tempting to want to chomp upon the zombie chump who chomped upon you! Basically, when you’ve been bitten by a zombie, you can find yourself feeling the urge to become zombie-like yourself. But you must resist. You must stay strong. You must keep your soul alive! How? First, you must face toward the light – where love, forgiveness, peace, faith, joy, and growth can all be found. All of this light is what keeps your soul alive – and keeps you from becoming an unconscious, soul-dead zombie. Zombie-like behavior cannot survive in the light. Zombie-like behavior thrives in darkness, with a shut-down soul and well-fed ego – an ego which survives on being right about having the right to be bitter, resentful, and depressed…all before breakfast! One the biggest sources of light to keep your soul alive is Self-love. And one of the biggest sources of self-love? Forgiveness. Forgiveness can start with forgiving yourself for being bitten by a soulless zombie. After all, chances are, the zombie who chomped upon you didn’t look like a zombie. Just like in the movies, these soulless zombies often pass themselves off as normal soulful people. Next, you have to forgive the zombie who bit you. Remember, forgiving your zombie will release their poison from your system. Forgiving your zombie will help to make sure you save your soul from shutting down. Forgiving your zombie will make sure you don’t start craving constant dark thoughts. Forgiveness releases the zombie-bite poison from your system. Remind yourself that your zombie probably became a zombie because a zombie bit them. And the zombie who bit them, was bitten by a zombie. And the zombie who bit them, was bitten by a zombie. Feel compassion for these zombies—knowing that they, sadly, must walk the earth living with a shut-down soul—never experiencing their own soul, dancing and shining with the light of love, forgiveness, peace, faith, joy, and growth. If you’ve recently been bitten by a zombie, take a moment to vow to yourself that you will do what you can to save this planet from being overtaken by zombies, by making sure you, at least, won’t become a zombie yourself!

Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.

Tact - if only we could be better at this. Teaching TACT at this level is possible and should be done.

be nice. it's always been my struggle telling my past...much of it contains not so nice stories or experiences but does contain the most wonderful and beautful triumph, a happy life lived with some heartbreak but surely no regrets!

Due to some recent issues with long time friends-or so I thought they were, someone gave me this quote to cheer me up...and tell me what a true friend really is...thanks!!

@Lauren Whitehurst, just keep finding em today. . . just thought while we are both at the edge and throwing over all the people that bring nothing but drama and stress into our lives, we could use a little literary support for doing so ;)

Sometimes you don't realize you're actually drowning when you're trying to be everyone else's anchor.

So true! A lady told me the other day she loved my haircut. It made my day. And I think the reverse of this quote is true. I always try to not make someone's day worse even if I can't summon up the energy to make it (hopefully) better.

Yes... and sometimes the negative I soak in from others around me just drains the life out of me.

When someone rejects the help they have initially asked for and go into every excuse of why they can't then that's the time to walk away. They don't truly want to be free and in remaining there you are keeping them stuck too.

Forget all the psycho-babel-bullcrap; deep down your heart's love for someone is real. But Never again will I ever allow others to have me think I am somehow codependent. Mourn it, let it go, move on, and be wiser for the next journey...never ever be confused again....
