W.I.N. Wednesday: Ann Landers and Budda both agree
"Holding onto anger is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die."
"Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head."
Esther Lederer, a.k.a. Ann Landers
Who are you poisoning yourself over?
Who is living rent free in your head?
Life is about choices so what are you going to choose to do about it?
You cannot change the other person. You cannot change what they said or what they did. You cannot change the past and you cannot change them for the future.
You can change your attitude and decide to forgive them and set them free.
"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you."
Lewis B. Smedes
Forgiveness does not mean you condone anything the other person did. It does mean that you accept they were likely doing the best they could in the circumstances and they have their own issues and baggage, none of which you control. Forgiving them and setting them free allows you to take back your power, your control and your life.
It is up to you. Hold on to the anger and resentment, or let it go.
What’s Important Now? – Choose to forgive and set yourself free from the squatter in your head and flush the poison from your mind and body.
