This time, I realized that it’s entirely true that my past will never change and that the person I evolve through being doesn’t have to hold onto those anchors.
Realizing that it’s going to be far more rewarding buying a bike with a paycheck that I earn rather than waiting for my family to treat me like I deserve:
With kindness, awareness, and appreciation of my circumstances.
Forgiveness is accepting that my family is not going to change, so I’m going to have to make what I want to have happen with my own resources and options.
The road to this has been awful and will likely continue to be for a good while, but when things are finally steady, I will be able to appreciate it so much more.
