It’s been said that no thought lives in your head rent free
And your thoughts cost you more than you may realize
In the moment. Thoughts of bitterness, resentment,
And revenge are the most costly to the extent
That they hijack your happiness. Your spirit dies
As you justify your feelings vehemently.
Every time you think about that person who wronged
You, that person steals your consciousness. Like your home,
Your mind only has room for so many thoughts, so
It is best that you take the high road and let go
Of the issue, lest you be caught in a syndrome
Of abject desperation that may be prolonged.
Don’t forgive to make someone else feel better or
Because it’s the right thing to do. Forgive for you.
Release your attachment to negativity
To make room for the thoughts that are absolutely
Beneficial. They are of tremendous value.
There will be many new horizons to explore.
When someone mistreats you, in the moment it feels
Like it’s all about you, but more often than not,
It’s about something over which you’ve no control.
Own whatever you can. Forgiveness makes one whole.
You can find relief from misery on the spot.
Take advantage of the only method that heals.
