Everything in this meditation spoke to the painful, nearly non-existent relationship I currently have with my mother—someone I have been struggling to forgive for trying to end my relationship with my boyfriend.
While I’ve been focusing on the health and happiness of myself and my relationship, I have found it extremely difficult not only to accept that my mother would not change, but accepting that I may never be able to have a healthy relationship with her. Two people must forgive each other to move past pain and build a healthy, loving bond.
In forgiveness, we are holding onto past pain, and sometimes we must forgive someone and part ways to continue the pain from reoccurring. Forgiveness can be letting go, with love, and that is something I have been preparing to do with my family.
As painful as it is to let go of people that I love, I want to forgive them and move on with my life, rather than continuously ask them to love and respect who I am and what I want.
