Well, since life is so very short, so here is a brief but rather in depth look at a big part of who I am... Once I was depressed-for a long time. I held onto feelings of betrayal, bitterness and anger. The negative feelings had robbed me of my joy and my happiness. In time however, I learned that I was actually allowing those negative feelings, and hence that other person, to CONTROL my present happiness. I learned that by forgiving, even if only secretly in my heart, I reaped happiness again for myself. And it worked. I slowly let go of the negative feelings, and reaped joy TEN-FOLD. I learned that when we give into the negative feelings and hold onto them, that we are actually allowing that person control over us. So, in order to take the control back, we have to choose. Will we give others the control over our inner peace? Or will we choose to forgive, to regain our inner peace again and hence our happpiness...? I chose to forgive, and I am a happy person again.
I truely love people too. For the most part, people are pretty great. They are smart, funny & totally interesting. I love sharing & encouraging & being encouraged by others. I try to live by the creed, "season your words” with kindness. Be kind to those who are unkind to us, for it is they who truly need it the most.
