Just one of those things I already know. Forgiving others frees me.
I recently realized that I had a couple of lists. The individuals on both were people I had been in conflict with in the past. The factor that allowed me to differentiate between the lists was forgiveness.
The group of people I had forgiven is a comfortable list. I’m not saying that everything is great with those folks. On most of them, I don’t know if they have forgiven me — although I know I have apologized for wrongdoings and asked for forgiveness. But I’m comfortable — both with the list and the people. I feel easy around them. Once again, I’m not positive about how they feel. I can only do what I can do.
That other one is troublesome — the unforgiven list. For whatever reason, I haven’t been able to bring myself to let go.
And I have, thus, denied myself freedom.
About time to make some New Year’s Resolutions — with names and faces attached.
