10 Steps To Getting Over Yourself and Enjoying Your Life
Emotions need no square footage, but are likely the thing that take up the most space in our lives.
Forgiveness makes space.
Improve your mental health & relationships
Reduce anxiety, stress & hostility
Lower blood pressure
Reduce symptoms of depression
Improve immunity & self-esteem
But it is important to know when it is valuable and when it is destructive.

Your humans are who you choose them to be for as long as you mutually continue to bring benefit into each others lives. And the moment that ends, you should fuck off from each other.

Forgiveness is the commitment to move away from suffering.
It strips the source of it’s strength because it requires you to question it.
Forgiveness is not acceptance or reconciliation.
Forgiveness is also not the same as forgetting or denying.
