you do know in order to progress in your life, you gotta forgive your parents right? you have to let go of any negative feelings you have towards them. you have to realize that they were only doing the best they could with the knowledge they had. yes, they may have hurt your feelings, caused a good amount of your trauma, + even held you back in life but you have to LET. THAT. GO. if you don’t, you’re going to be stuck in resentment mode + you know that’s not a good place to be.
your parents are human just like you, they make mistakes just like you, they’re figuring out life just like you. you can’t hold anything against anyone if you want to step into a new way of living, including them. remember the energy of this week/month is releasing things that no longer serve us. maybe one of these things has to do with the way you view your parents. maybe there’s some things from your childhood that you need to process and heal. going down memory lane + digging a little deeper into what made you who you are today is necessary. i know it’s hard, but it’s not impossible.
try your best to turn that anger + pain into compassion for them because they were once children too. + remember, how they were raised was reflected in how they raised you so technically, they are not to blame. at the same time, you can not just point out all the negative ways they affected you. you must appreciate them for all the positive ways too. look at how amazing you turned out to be. look at all the things you accomplished on your own + how much you’ve grown through in life. you didn’t do all of that by yourself, it was also the result of their parenting. so give them their proper credit.
i promise you, once you decide to let go of all those ill feelings and forgive them, you will feel so much better. it will literally be a weight lifted off of your chest and a new door will open in your life. by forgiving your parents, not only are you setting them free, but you’re setting yourself free as well. try it out + watch the shift that comes with it.
i love you
