Everything in this world happens for a reason which one will only become aware of in hindsight. Friendships and other relationships are forged because at that particular point in your life the powers that be saw the need of the persons involved to be connected to each other. At the end of these alliances, being the fickle creatures that we are, we usually ask ourselves what was the point. There was a point and if you look objectively at where you are now in your process of development and where you were then you’d definitely see the reason.
Sadly not many of us do this and so people waste their time and energy striking out at the person who decided to end the relationship. This is something which I could never understand and probably never will. Why would I invest precious time and energy into trying to hurt someone who has probably forgotten all the times spent with you and moved on with their lives?
It is my belief that in order for you to truly be able to move on with your life and to achieve any level of self-actualization you must have a clean slate. You should forgive all the ‘fools’ who have wronged you, apologize to all those you’ve offended (and those who think you’ve offended them). Then and only then can you really begin to focus on the most important person in your life; you.
This is why I’ve decided to do just that this week. Forgive the fools, and apologize to those I have wronged. This is by no means an easy task, but it is something that must be done.
If you’re one of those persons who I’ve offended leave me a comment here and I’ll give you a public apology.
