FORGIVENESS and self love are not meant to be exclusive. 

Forgiveness means just letting it go. But self care - self love - must also accompany forgiveness in order to find the relief you seek from hurt, anger, fear or emotional suffering. 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. Honoring your truth is your self responsibility as an adult. You must cultivate a strong sense of inner authority to keep yourself and your inner child healthy and safe while in a forgiveness process with someone you may also love. There is letting it go (and all of the processing that goes along with that), and keeping ourselves 100 percent protected and safe. You must find your own way to honor both.

If you are on the path to forgiveness, and really we all are whether we are aware of it or not, know this. Forgiveness (letting go) begins to happen naturally when that is our intention for processing our pain and creating a healthy respected life. Securing and maintaining our personal power, through making right choices where our own happiness and wellbeing come first, must be foundationed firmly along the way.
