However, it is completely a journey about self. Whatever harm another might have caused, the only person we can heal and make whole again is self. 

So it is our view of the situation, our anger, judgment, feelings of betrayal, victimhood, or blame that are the problem and the forgiveness that is needed. 

Forgiving someone is not saying that what they did was O.K. It is letting go of the emotional burden, the giant imbalance, our focus on the wrong doing is causing for ourselves. 

Hatred towards another literally kills, eats away and destroys from the inside out, the one who is hating. It has little to no affect on the one being hated. 

In the end, the need for forgiveness is the letting go and release emotionally from the thing causing the emotional pain. It is a loving act that we give to ourselves – because if we don’t let it go, we may never love again, may never experience joy again, may never be happy and healthy again. 

There is a very real feeling of release, a giant burden lifted, when we have truly let it go. 

Who ever they are and what ever they did, you are worth infinitely more and your happiness is worth infinitely more. Continuing to focus on them is detracting from you and the brilliant being you are, the love you deserve, the joy that is yours by divine birthright. 

I’ve walked this road more than once – rape, an unfaithful husband, a friends betrayal, and on and on it goes. 

I could not be happy and healthy if I did not truly thoroughly release and let go of the anger and emotional pain I felt over these things. 

It is a journey as I said before. 

Spend time alone in nature in silence. Journal about it. And once you have said all you are feeling to the Universe in the form of pen to paper, let it go and don’t revisit it again.

That is my way anyway.

I have an essence designed specifically to assist in the forgiveness and healing process. Its called “Forgiveness” of course. You can learn more about it and purchase some here: https://www.magnificentu.com/store/Forgiveness-Aromatherapy-Flower-Essence-Healing-Oil 

Much love to you as you work through those things that require forgiveness. And remember … you have to also forgive yourself.

Much love,

  1. You are fortunate that you have figured a way to forgive and move on. For me, it’s not so easy. In 2 recent cases it took death for me to forgive, but not forget. I’m jinxed! But I’ll tell you this, even in the darkest times and the worst memories, a light always shines through and I remember the good things, too. Maybe that’s my way of forgiveness, prior to death. What do you think?


  2. I believe that forgiveness is really for the person who was wronged. Because not until you let go of the hurt and forgive, you will never be at peace


  3. Takara – you have succinctly encapsulated the self gift of forgiveness. I work with people who have a tough time working their way to a state of forgiveness and don’t realize that the state of “unforgiveness” is a toxic state that ultimately does damage to the self. Thank you for your wonderful post.


  4. It has taken me so very many years to understand that forgiveness is about me, my journey. Now I realize how very arrogant my view of forgiveness was. OMG! I’m on this journey now and walked through months where I knew forgiveness was the way and couldn’t … that has shifted and forgiveness is where the peace comes from.

    I love that you share what you’ve learned!

    Laugh lots, Love more!

  5. Unforgiveness can truly erode a person, inside and out. Unforgiveness can destroy your health and the ability to move forward. Unforgiveness can erode the relationships closest to you. True forgiveness can release so many feelings and mend relationships. True forgiveness gives freedom.


  6. Well said. Forgiveness is about releasing the power the situation had on you. It is about reclaiming you life.


  7. What a great post. I like that you mention to journal and not revisit it. I think that is a good piece of advice. If you have truly released it you do not need to revisit. Now one can put better stuff in the place that is now vacated! Thanks for sharing.


  8. Really enjoyed this piece, Takara. The more we forgive ourselves and leave the past in the past, we free ourselves to move unencumbered into our future.


  9. Forgiveness is more for our own benefit than for the other person. Unless we learn to forgive, we cannot move through! I read this story many years ago of a brother and sister who lived through the same things, One forgave and lived a healthy life. The other chose NOT to and became all crippled by arthritis and became a miserable human being. That… says it all!
