Whereas procrastination is the heart of time management, relaxing is the heart of forgiveness. It’s the ability to move on and not give a fuck about the pain someone caused you or pain you may have even caused yourself.
The more you are able to forgive, the more you able to relieve yourself of stress and feel at ease.
You may think that it is hard to forgive.
...But it is harder to hold onto resentment than it is to accept the wrongs a person did to us.
Mistakes are Meh. You know that. Allow a person to fuck up once in a while. Allow them to make mistakes.
That doesn't mean you like them. That doesn't mean you agree with them. That doesn't mean you approve of what they did or said.
That doesn't even mean they have to be a part of your life any more.
But coming to peace with the terms of the fact that they hurt you, rather than allowing that same pain to linger on and on for ages is what creates the lazy life you're looking for.
Forgiveness is accepting. It is understanding.
It is choosing to let go of any sort of grudge.
Forgive others for all the times they may have fucked up or fucked you over, and most importantly, forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself for the times you fucked up, for the times you fucked yourself over.
At the end of the day, you choose to either forgive and heal or hold on to resentment and keep picking the scab.
You're not denying that it ever happened. You're simply just not letting it get under your skin.
The key to forgiveness is not allowing the past to haunt you. The longer you don't forgive, the more painful it becomes.
Forgiveness is about easing that pain and finally coming to grips with what happened and how it happened.
Forgive it all. otherwise, your life becomes a constant apology.
