Agoraphobic Philosopher ponders forgiveness

Posted on: August 20, 2012

agoraphobic philosopher ponders:

if you live with the idea of forgiveness,
if you live with the idea of kindness,
if you live with the idea of curiosity,

then you shouldn’t hold anger or hate or mistrust in your heart

because if you live with the idea that everyone can be redeemed and forgiven – then carrying a grudge, judging people, and punishing them – should be unthinkable

none of which means you shouldn’t think critically and not forget – after all, anyone who continues the objectionable behaviours is not trying to redeem themselves, they are just trying to pull the same crap over again.

but the point is, if you know you will forgive, then let go of the anger and hurt – get toxic people out of your life or minimized as best as you can

then get on with your own life, which, when based in positive emotions and thoughtfulness – self management and mindfulness,

no matter what happens in and around your life, you will be able to find and see more joy and happiness than looking at the world from a negative emotional place that skews your perspective about the world and your place in it.

Exactly, the only person who really is harmed by negative emotions is yourself. A good reminder.

hmmmm. yes that certainly is part of the message

the other part being, when you know you will be over the emotional hurdle at some point

why put it off – make it sooner than later.

far better on your heart and mind

exactly. very wise. Have a great evening.
