Day 14 #cdflessonsfromyoga: Compass Pose| Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana
Today’s lesson is about learning when to forgive. Now, just about everything we have ever heard is: always! And yes, I believe that. Why? Cause forgiving is honestly what helps set us free, not necessarily them.
HOWEVER, I have experienced forgiving somebody before I’m ready. And I don’t mean because of pride. I mean, where I did it out of guilt for being angry or hurt at someone without fully processing the pain first. Basically, I’m trying to say to give yourself grace if you can’t immediately find it in you to forgive. BUT, I encourage you to always have a heart that is postured toward forgiveness. MEANING, that you don’t discount the pain, you do what needs to be done to process it, you don’t put a guilt ridden time limit on it, but that you know you won’t remain in the pain, and that you are working towards true forgiveness; meaning, you know when it’s time to fully let it go and embrace forgiveness so that you are whole.
My husband has a saying and I love it:
“Be diligent in your process. Do it with excellence. See it through to the end.”
