Universe will handle it…

It’s taken many years for me to realize that situations need to play out in their own time. I was too fixated on holding people accountable for the pain they’ve caused. Whether it was a prejudiced coworkers, one of my ex-husbands, or family members, I couldn’t move past the pain

It’s still challenging for me to forgive especially if I can’t tell them how much their actions hurt me. However, life doesn’t work that way. When people hurt you, their actions come from a different place than where the pain will hits you. Their memory of it leaves right away. In some cases, they don’t even care. That’s a sad thought. All I can control is how I process the pain and move towards forgiveness. I’ll let the universe handle the rest.
