Lets talk about wasting energy. I don’t mean electricity or power, I mean your energy. I’m talking about holding on to things that don’t need to matter anymore and wasting energy that you could be using to enjoy life. Holding grudges, seeking revenge, hating people – these are all things that suck the energy right out of us. Why keep hating someone who made a mistake over a year ago? People make mistakes. People mess up, they get confused. But people also grow up, and change, and learn from their mistakes. The person you’re hating is probably not the same person today.
Let go of unnecessary anger. Stop talking bad about people you no longer really know. Give someone a second chance. Wouldn’t you want one if you made a mistake? The world would be such a better place if we could just forgive a little more. And you don’t necessarily need to keep that person in your life, and you don’t need to love them…but you certainly don’t need to waste your time and energy disliking them. So next time you find yourself judging someone on something they’ve done in the past, take a deep breath and let it go. Be the bigger person. It’s not worth your time.
