A letter of forgiveness

Good morning my lionesses,


I was recently asked by my therapist to write a letter of forgiveness. One to myself and one to my ex. This came with some hesitation because I wasn't quite sure what I would write for both. I don't have anything that I need to forgive myself for. I'm happy with where I am. I'm finally at a place where I feel like I love all of myself. I am excited about where my life will take me next. And as for my ex, I already dropped everything he has done. I wasn't even thinking about it anymore. But I wrote anyway because I trusted her.


Pink pen to paper it was, on this past Monday night, and a full page each I wrote.


I will share my letter of forgiveness to myself below because it's really powerful. My letter consisted of forgiving myself for letting my sadness consume me, allowing myself to be malleable by others, and letting others disrespect me. It serves as a reminder of how far I have come, and it only comes with gratitude for where I was. In the last sentence, I wrote, "Where you've been only pushed you to where you are now. It does not define you. I'm proud of you."


My letter to my ex consisted of this, " I forgive you because my heart deserves it. My soul deserves it. My energy deserves it. I forgive you because we all make mistakes out of fear... I forgive you because I love you + love is love. It holds grace."


No matter what is to come next in my life, whether my path is continuing on my own, with my ex, or with another person, I know I have finally moved past the last 3 years of my life. I'm on that new chapter. The chapter is about pouring love into myself, so I may pour it onto others. When my soul is happy and dancing, doing the things that bring me joy, I have more light and love to give to others. And that is my why for this lifetime (I even have it written in my planner and didn't know why I did until I wrote that last sentence)


"I want to make people feel lighter, happier, joyous because they met me."
