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, often allows us to bring about an understanding that we didn’t have before.
Our life to the point of changing direction is always as it is. We’re born into that life, but for a reason not always clear to us. We’re not always supposed to know why something happens in the way it does, or why we’re subjected to that life, but further down the line it often 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 bring about understanding will always allow for change.
