Starting a conversation with Forgiveness

[Forgiveness, what do you have to say today?]

I’d like to begin by saying thank you for taking some time to speak to me, and letting me express myself on paper for a change. Computer screen, paper, whatever, please don’t let’s get pedantic already, I’m only one sentence in.

So anyway, I think this is possibly the first ever time you’ve asked me to express myself so thank you for the privilege.

First things first, I’m not your average emotion. Well, I’m not an emotion at all. I’m just something that you need to do. A lot of. But you already know that. Kind of.

You’re holding onto a lot, you’re just not sure what it is, or where to find it. But this is the first step. Starting the conversation. Through writing, we’ll get to know one another a little better. Then, bit by bit, when you’re ready, I’ll reveal what you’re looking for.

That’s it, don’t worry. Any time you feel like a sip of your green tea frappĂ© go for it. I’ll still be here. I’m not going anywhere.

It took a lot of courage to start writing this today and I’m proud of you for that. I’m sure you’ll go through all the emotions and anything else you need to, but today is your first step on a new journey.

[Damn, this is one tasty green tea frappĂ©. It’s like drinking ice cream. Nom nom nom.]

It’s fine to look around for a while too instead of constantly looking at the keyboard. I like to just sit for a while and soak it up. It feels nice to have some company for a change.

So I guess you’re wondering what we’re going to talk about today?

[You guessed right.]

Well, let’s start with what I actually am. I’m not sure you understand what forgiveness is, or why it’s so important, so it’s as good a place as any to start.

Forgiveness, simply put, is the ability to let go of anything that has hurt you in the past.

It’s the act of releasing past judgements, resentments, hatreds. Basically anything that you’re holding on to.

There’s a trick to forgiveness that I’ll reveal a bit further down the line, but for now you can be content in knowing that you will be able to forgive everyone and everything that has ever caused you hurt.

I’ll also add in here that your awareness will expand as a result of this. It’s taking a lot of energy to hold on to everything right now, even though you’re doing it unconsciously, and once you release it all, you’ll feel a lot lighter and more full of life.

I’m glad you’re finally paying attention, as I’ve been waiting to tell you all this for years. There’s a lot more to be revealed, and bit by bit, person by person and thing by thing, we’ll work together to let go of all of it.

I think that’s enough from me for today. Check in when you feel like talking to me again. In the meantime, it’s probably time for you to make some new friends. Enjoy. x
