No thought lives in your head rent free and your thoughts cost
Way more than you may realize in the moment.
Thoughts of bitterness, revenge, and resentment are
Perhaps the most expensive because they are far
From delightful. They are of extreme discontent.
To your negative emotions you’ve become lost.
Every time you think of that person who wronged you
That person has hijacked your mind. Your happiness
And your time have been stolen and you are the one
Allowing it to happen. The harm that is done
To the psyche is serious. You may obsess
About giving the son of a gun what is due.
You can choose to occupy your mind with thoughts of
Bitterness or of thoughts that will empower you.
Hatred is like drinking poison and expecting
The other person to die. It’s not affecting
Anyone but yourself. The best thing you can do
Is forgive and grow. This is the pathway to love.
Don’t forgive to make someone else feel better or
Because it’s the ‘right’ thing to do. Do it to free
Yourself from your self-torment. Make room in your mind
For all things that add value to your life. You’ll find
That you can get on with you life and happily.
Keep your real estate open to things you adore.
