Do You Know The Art Of Forgiving?

Do you know the art of forgiving

I used to have a hard time forgiving others who betrayed me because I felt that forgiving them was a sign of weakness on my part.

And I believed that if I forgave someone, then it was an opportunity to be hurt again, at some point, by him or her. So to protect myself, I would sever all ties with my wrong-doers.

But the problem in doing so is that, I would find myself obsessing over what had been done to me by them. Oftentimes, replaying such events in my mind would lead to me feeling resentment toward those individuals. I was miserable.

The Best And Worst Part Of Me

The Best and Worst Part of Me

I am an over thinker.

This particular quality that I have is the result of being a long-time writer. It is a requirement of the profession to always find ways to introduce fresh and creative ideas to one’s writing. This way, a writer can engage his or her readers more effectively. So thinking a lot, in this aspect is a good thing.

Moreover, as a former student of higher education, this type of lifestyle also required me to spend copious amounts of time analyzing various class assignments. As a result, I was able to better understand the material I was given by my professors, which afforded me, a successful academic career.

However, being an over thinker can cause more harm than good to yourself if you don’t find balance in your thoughts.

One of the most important investments you can make

A substantial amount of my energy used to be spent on nurturing relationships with others. I would consistently call my friends, send them text messages and plan meet-ups with them. As well as, tend to the needs of a boyfriend, and make sure that my family was taken care of financially.

More times than not, I felt unfulfilled in my life because I had consistently given so much to others, but I wasn’t always treated well by those who I did the most for.

Eventually, I came to the realization that to make any type of relationship work well, it must be reciprocal. There has to be give-and-take from all parties involved, in order for the relationship to be healthy.

Communication Advice: Sometimes It Is Best To Just, Shut Up

Communication Advice - Sometimes It Is Best To Just Shut Up

I am someone who has no problem with speaking my mind.  And although I have often told one person or another, my exact thoughts, my words have not always been received well.

In the past, I have been extremely blunt and harsh when it came to communicating with certain people. Not out of being a “mean girl,” but because I am just an extremely passionate person.

I only want good things for those who I care the most about. And if I feel that they are on a path, not in their best interest, for example, then I will let them know about it.
