Why the long face?
Why are you beating yourself up because you’ve been deeply hurt by someone?
Why do you think you should be the one to suffer for another person’s misdeed?
Tell you what, this is no time to drown yourself in tears, neither is it the time to wallow in self-pity or regrets. Rather, it’s the time to heal. And for you to heal, you must first forgive yourself, and then forgive the one that hurt you.
I know you feel like you’re to blame for allowing yourself to be hurt like that. You feel like you allowed yourself to be cheated and used. But hey, come off it! It’s not your fault that you were sweet enough to trust someone. You have to shake it off and forgive yourself.
After you must have done that, you need to forgive the one who hurt you, it is the sweetest revenge! When people treat you badly and you payback with forgiveness, it kills them!
Forgiving them doesn’t mean what they did to you is acceptable, it simply means you refuse to let it hold you back because your peace of mind is paramount to you.
Never give anyone the chance to kill your joy.
Let it go!
