When you SET FREE a person. It doesn't mean that you no longer love them. It's just that you're not meant for that person because there's someone out there that waits for you, but it's so hard to set free a person when you thought that he/she is the best person you've ever met. Find all the LOVE in your heart to FORGIVE the person who has wronged you, who has hurt you the most.
People you may evenstrongly dislike. You will not be able to MOVE ON if you do not FORGIVE. Forgiving is the best way to LET GO. Clean up your past with good thoughts, and good memories. If not, the bad memories will always come back to haunt you.
The flip side is, when the person you love commits a MISTAKE, and does ask for FORGIVENESS, there's nothing to forgive because, if you love someone there is NO RULES AND APOLOGIES. All you need to do is think this to yourself: "Do you want to know the difference between the TWO OF US? I TRUSTED you that's why I held on. I loved you that's why I let you go."
It's not what you've been through in your life that defines who you are, it's how you got through it that has made you the person you are today. Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you've ever been, to stand up taller than you than you ever were.
We all make mistakes, hurt, and disappoint people, get hurt, and get disappointed. Don't get caught up in the past, learn from it. Allow yourself to grow, to smile, and to be happy. Isn't it lovely to look in the mirror, and see a honest person, your best friend, the one you can always count on. Make sure you are. Love yourself. With a big fire in your heart, you can set other hearts on fire. Be gentle, kind, respectful, sincere. If you carry that out, you might inspire others with that attitude.
Sometimes people are beautiful, not in looks, not in what they say, just in who they are, and what they do. Remember, you will never fully appreciate all of the things someone does for you until you find yourself doing the same things for yourself. So be grateful for the people who make your life a little brighter.
They are the charming gardeners who help your soul blossom. There is nothing casual about being in a relationship. It's not just about caring, loving, and sharing, but it's also about being loyal, and responsible towards someone. Don't take it as something that binds you. Instead take it as something that makes you truly special.
