We can’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, helps us bring about an understanding we didn’t have before.
Our life to the point of changing direction is as it is, it is fated. We’re born into our lives, but for a reason not always clear to us. It is not always clear to us why that is our life, but further down the line it can become clear.
Whatever we have to deal with 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.
There is no getting away from our experiences, but how much effort we put in to bringing about understanding will always allow for change. We must be instrumental that change.
