We don’t erase the memories, but through our understanding and finding a place for those memories, we free ourselves of the bitterness. The memories brought about through other people’s actions are then remembered as a valuable lesson.
Letting go will never cancel out another person’s actions, or the frustrations we have, but freeing ourselves of the bitterness attached to those actions, allows us to bring about an understanding we didn’t have before.
Our life to the point of changing direction is always as it is. We’re born into our lives, but for a reason not always clear to us. It’s not always clear why that is our life, or why we’re subjected to our life, but often further down the line it becomes clear.
But whatever we go through, doesn’t mean others are off the hook for allowing what we go through to happen, but where opportunities eventually arise and change happens, we can bring about an understanding and acceptance, where we may have struggled without, but we must be instrumental to that change.
There is often no getting away from our experiences, but how much effort we put in to bringing about understanding will always allow for change.
