Understanding Your Daily Focus

Forgiveness isn’t as easy as just saying the words, but with that said; saying the words is a good start. Part of being able to forgive is also being able to let go and reset, to start fresh—not by forgetting what has happened, but by using it as a foundation to move forward and leave the past behind as a lesson.  Sometimes it’s pride that can keep us from forgiving someone, our own minds attempting to protect us, convince us that we are better off without whatever or whoever hurt us.

The reality is that forgiveness is an ongoing process, but that it also gets easier the more you do it. Once we can begin to understand that there can be multiple true but opposing viewpoints, that you can be right and someone else can be right too, it becomes easier to allow both realities to exist. The key to forgiveness is bringing yourself into a place where there is no longer conflict, resentment, and anger. Sometimes this means letting go and moving on, sometimes this means moving on in a more physical or tangible way, leaving things behind, and starting over without the anger and fear hanging over us. In this week’s Daily Focus, I want to look at the healing power of forgiveness.

“Last night I lost the world and gained the Universe.”C. JoyBell C

This is a reminder that when we let go, we make space for the mystical unknown. It can be hard to trade the things we know for the things we don’t. Often, our own fears hold us back more than logic and reality. This week, allow yourself to let go of the things that no longer serve you, to open up space within yourself for the things that are yet to come.

“I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.”Khaled Hosseini

Sometimes, when we’re upset with someone, we want the fanfare. We want the big meltdown and tears and finding common ground. We want someone to be as upset as we are. But that’s not always an option. Sometimes, the best way to move on is to really let go, for real. This can mean walking away without traditional resolution. Sometimes we don’t get the closure, but it doesn’t mean we can’t move forward and set a new stage.

“True forgiveness is when you can say, ‘Thank you for that experience.’”Oprah Winfrey

When the pain of our emotions begins to fade, we can start to look at things as lessons instead of pitfalls. Looking back, I can see that for myself, the times in my life when I was at my lowest did in fact lead to revelations, to understanding that I myself had to lose something in order to gain something. This week, try to look at your losses as potential gains.

“Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart.”Corrie Ten Boom

It can be hard to forgive, but the truth is that the power is always within you. When we can start to look at other people as just people, not as good, bad, evil, or saintly—just as humans who will do both harm and good throughout their time, we can begin to understand that forgiveness is not really about being okay with behavior, but rather understanding that it’s probably coming from a place of hurt, more than anything else. Compassion is what allows us to forgive, regardless of our feelings about the situation itself.

“Life is grace. Sleep is forgiveness. The night absolves. Darkness wipes the slate clean, not spotless to be sure, but clean enough for another day’s chalking.”Frederick Buechner

The old adage sleep on it has a lot of merits. When we are in a state of emotional dysregulation, when anger leads, when we want to fight, or flee, or win at any cost—we’re not going to be able to behave or react appropriately. It’s important to ground yourself, to let yourself find a place of calm before returning to the situation at hand.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”Mahatma Gandhi

It might feel like a strength to lean into pride, to pretend that you don’t care, or to double down on bad behavior. This week, I urge you to challenge yourself here. Think about the things you claim not to care about and ask yourself if that’s really true. Acknowledging your own pain is difficult, but it is an act of courage and strength as well.

“Forgiveness has nothing to do with absolving a criminal of his crime. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the burden of being a victim–letting go of the pain and transforming oneself from victim to survivor.”C.R. Strahan

At the end of the day, you are looking out for yourself and the best thing you can do to free yourself from the pain of anger, resentment, and hatred, even where it may be deserved, is to allow yourself the space to let go. This is a gift that only you can give yourself, ultimately. Nothing someone else says or does will have the power to change and move you the way you do.
