In life, you may have gone through bitter and ugly relationships. Maybe you were just treated unfairly or things just didnít work out as planned even when you gave it your all and you felt really hurt. There are also times when you had seen the handwriting on the wall, but you just hate to face the truth, giving all kind of excuses and yet things still didnít work out. But really, bad times like this could be good lessons. You never lose, you only gain from life. Itís just a matter of your perspective. If you lose something, you lose it for a reason, that reason may be hard to understand but whatever it is, you just have to believe that GOD takes away when He has something better to give.
Itís time to bury those old memories, let it go. Itís okay to shed those tears, sound it all off but donít remain there for too long. Life is too short for regrets. Regrets are meant to teach us what to do better next time; evaluated experience is the best teacher. Itís time to evaluate your own shortcomings, call a spade a spade and not a big spoon. As Julius Caesar once said, ďhe who fails to learn from the hands of history is doomed to repeat itĒ. Many a time, instead of learning from our past experiences, you find yourself repeating them.
Maya Angelou once said ďit takes courage to love somebody; you have to risk everythingĒ. Have that courage to love again. Courage is the answer to all your fears. It is not always that easy but the Grace of GOD is always available. Forgive whoever may have hurt you; it does you more favour than the other person. As Joyce Meyer said ďharbouring unforgiveness is like eating poison and hoping that your enemy will dieĒ. Let the past pass away so that you do not pass away with your past.
Donít let the fear of your past turn good people who may want to come into your life neither does anyone deserve to pay for your exís sins. Vengeance is of GODís. Donít use that single experience if not more to form a theory that all others will be the same.
In all, forgive yourself and the other person and trust GOD for the best for you deserve the best. Value, respect and appreciate yourself for GOD values and loves you so much.
