The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
- Jelaluddin Rumi

You may need to forgive yourself and walk away from toxic people who harm you in order to experience lasting peace and wellbeing, the ultimate gifts of letting go.
You cannot experience true forgiveness (lasting forgiveness) while giving up your personal power, aka your Truth. (Taking care of yourself via your truth is your self responsibility as an adult.) You must find your own way to honor both.
If you are on the path to forgiveness, and really we all are whether…Continue
