For others and ourselves
The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to have grace for others and ourselves.
It is a heavy burden to carry grudges.
Undeserved means it doesn't need to be earned.
Given freely not only for the recipient but for the provider.
Like clutter we burden ourselves with hurts and cling to wrongs that we have committed or others have committed against us. All that negative energy drags us down to a place that is darker than the initial insult.
Forgiveness, grace, including these are the hearts we should have not only for others but for ourselves. Dwelling on our missteps does not serve us well. As I write this I know that I need to have grace for me. Learn from poor choices and then move on.
