Let go of the burden 

We have all been hurt by someone. We have all felt the heart crushing pain of the dissipation of trust. I know it is easy to hold on to that hurt and let it consume. Not to let go of it because it reminds us what happens when we open our hearts and let someone in. 

I am here to tell you that you do not have to carry that pain with you. You do not have to continue to build your walls thicker and thicker until no more feelings can penetrate you. You can let go. Forgive. When you have held onto resentment and anger for so long it is terrifying to let it go, but it is worth it. Anger is a heavy burden to carry. But you can choose to let it go. It will take time to forgive and be ride of those emotions and walls, but once you find yourself on the other side, you will feel brand new!

  1. I hear what you are saying but I find my anger invigorating at times and it certainly has helped me to address social justice issues in my life and in the life around me. Anger is just part of my humanity. I need it to feel more fully human, more fully alive. To deny it is to deny my humanity.
